Man in the Mirror

By Megan Sperry & Dahye Lee

Project Description
Man in the Mirror is a multimedia installation that uses the portraits of its participants to address ideas of multiculturalism and diversity while paying tribute to the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, and his famous song by the same title, “Man in the Mirror”. By manipulating the user images and projecting them on a wall for the participants to see, the installation is a fun way to address issues of diversity and ethnic identity.
