Selfie Horror Booth is a mirror cabinet that creates a mise en abyme with oneself taking selfies. The person inside the booth gets multiplied. The booth’s small dimension make people feel comfortable to take selfies. On top a surveillance camera is installed that anyone else can control from a distance on an external computer. After leaving the booth the person will see her/his performance on the external computer and makes then afterwards feel uncomfortable being monitored. It is an allegory to the digitally multiplied self and the loss control online.
