Perception and its memory are fundamental aspects in the research field of human-computer interaction: Artificial Intelligence aims to replicate the way the human mind works. Reactive to the environment that surrounds it, AI detects stimuli, decodes emotions, and reads the traits of people within its range of action.
In a immersive, contemplative environment, the visitors at first glance experience the installation as a normal mirror. But the viewers' image soon leaves room to ephemeral, rainbow-coloured clouds of points, generated by the artificial intelligence. The AI's interpretation of the viewer obscures the mirror and becomes the viewer's new reflection.
Information such as: sex, physical characteristics, emotional states and demographic references are registered and translated into a flow of information processed in real time by the AI.
And transmitted to custom-designed plotters.
The whole experience is designed as a data stream that flows between the viewers and their analogue reflection, a brief digital benevolent alter ego that returns to the viewer as a river of printed data stream.
感知與記憶是在人機互動的研究領域中的基礎方向；人工智能 (AI) 旨在複製人類思維的學習與工作，AI回應著四周環境、感知刺激、解讀情緒以至在其行動範圍內閱讀人們的特徵。

Ultravioletto is an interaction design studio. It works at the multidisciplinary junctions of architecture and design, narrative and installation, infusing them with emergent technologies. Ultravioletto has a marked sensitivity in experimentation on an expressive research path that enhances all the communication projects and the artworks that it creates. The results are works in which the analogical and digital dimensions merge to create a language capable of intensifying the human experience.
