This art project by integrates analysis by a video camera and image sensor to “reflect” the viewer based on their distance to the screen. As they approach, the image changes from a mirror to that of a painting and becomes more washed out as if it was composed with brushstrokes.

    While it is true it isn’t quite a new idea, its a thoroughly awesome one, and with endless possibilities. Its always nice to see different peoples takes on the concept and the various ways they chose to handle the image manipulation. Way cool stuff.
