Portrait on the Fly (2015) by Christa Sommerer and Laurent Mignonneau is an interactive installation using a monitor, which mimics the contours of a person standing in front of it with countless moving speckles resembling a swarm of flies. By being in a constant flux, the images on the screen construct and deconstruct the reflected image of a bystander, a commentary on people’s obsession with their own image and the associated transience and impermanence.
