Google Pixel2 – Elements

The extruded lens experiential

A great photograph is about optics, the skilful manipulation of light, combined with intelligent software. For Elements, TEM collaborated with Google Pixel 2 at the Radical Luxury space at Selfridges, creating an installation composed of a series of concentric disks of optically pure mirrored glass and projected light, forming an extruded lens.

TEM's programmatic visual and audio system took inputs from visitors to create a series of mandala-like fingerprints unique to each person's interpretation of luxury, accompanied by bespoke audio compositions. As the mandalas formed, a Pixel 2 captured a series of images at a specific point of view to align the disks around the visitor, creating a unique sharable portrait.
