The Mirror, Which Scans Your Colours


ColourMirror is a project that accompanies the exhibition In the Mood for Colours at the Museum of Applied Arts, Budapest. This interactive installation is an accessible and engaging way to match up visitors’ own outfits’ colour schemes with the spectacular colours of the exhibits. The digital Colour Mirror reflects how colourfully visitors are dressed.

The Mirror scans your clothes and produces the matching colour palette. Then it finds the object in the exhibition with the most similar colours, and creates a picture that you can send to yourself. It also collects data from other visitors to produce visualizations showing the most typical colours of the public during a particular period as well as visualization of the most colourful visitor.
