"Meimei Mascara" is a proximity activated interactive mirror created by the collective Liu Dao 六岛 (art direction: Wang Dongma 王东马). As the viewer walks by an antique wooden mirror, his reflection triggers another one: a little girl putting mascara on. Liu Dao’s approach to technology is one made upon his thoughts towards the great change in Chinese culture during the last decade. Liu Dao shows a tension between the traditional living conditions and the most advanced technology of which China is the cradle. With this work made out of wood and video screen- the old and the new hightech - Liu Dao displays the traditional family values and the newly constituted relationships holding it together, revealing the very personal struggle he encountered while developing his own artistic identity.
