Cloud Mirror

Director: Eric Gradman

Institute History

  • 2010 Sundance Film Festival


Artist and computer scientist Eric Gradman brings online social networking back into the human realm with Cloud Mirror, an interactive, augmented, reality-based art installation that merges audiences with their online identities. Step in front of the magic mirror, and you will see yourself in the flesh. You will also see your “second skin”—a thought bubble transmitting information from your Facebook, Twitter, and other social-networking identities. Anyone who has properly registered can participate in this playful and insightful work, which aims to bring human intimacy back into terrestrial interaction.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
