Peekaboo is a mirror that only reflects when you scream at it.
We live in a world where the bodily experience gets reduced to the finger tips, as interaction with the surrounding world continuously devolves towards touch interfaces.
What happens with our bodies? Will our organs, supplemented and supplanted by gadgets and appliences, atrophy?
Peekaboo is a performative object, that does not go easy on you. It resists, it is not convenient, as it takes quite some courage to scream at yourself. And yet, through the inconvenience, it gives its user the possibility to experience their body through their voice, while witnessing the process in the mirror.
As a performative object it unfolds its full power when used in everyday life.
To illustrate this point a short film was created:
Peekaboo has been shown at the CIAO exhibition in Karlsruhe.
It gave visitors an occasion to scream and vent their emotions during the Karlsruhe Museum Night 2017.
There is a limited edition coming. You should write me to reserve your Peekaboo mirror.
