REVOIR is an interactive mirror, activated by emotion detection to create stories through visual landcapes. As observers change their facial expression, the visuals assigned to different emotional states are blended into the medium. This mirror makes the act of observation a part of the creative act: by observing, the audience influences the medium. The medium becomes an open-ended exchange with its audience. © Mario Gagliardi Design 2018. This project was selected as finalist in the Playable Museum Awards 2018 of Museo Marino Marini in Florence, Italy.

19th century portrait photography was often made with painted backdrops of sylvan landscapes. This practice not only attempted to bridge the gap between the new medium of photography and portrait painting; it also catered to the desire of clients to be part of a work of art.
