Unlocking openness through a tiny mirror painted in black
Artistic interactive experience where a participant comes inside a room where there is an object - a tiny black mirror - on a chair and a white sheet of paper with a prompt. On the sheet of paper the participant reads a question about their life experience they consider to be dark. While sitting on the chair, the participant takes a tiny black mirror and talks into it as if it would be a microphone about this dark experience.
After talking to the black mirror, the participant leaves the space. By the exit, the participant finds a rainbow cupcake.
This experience aims to spark a feeling of curiosity about the darkness. It aims to ignite openess with the self, from where the openness within society starts from. Finding a cupcake is also essential part - it works as a transformation twist where reflecting on one's experiences creates insights that can lead to ideas (a metaphor of going from deconstruction to construction, from darkness to light).
Would you rather talk to an object or a real human? I mean, would you like to talk to a tiny black mirror or to a real person hidding on another side of a huge black mirror instead?
I'd like to create such an experience in an art festival and online.
