hey everyone, Boreta here
We've been working on a new photo app called Mirrorgram for the past few months. if you have been wondering how we create all those mirrored images, well... now you know :)
Mirrogram is going live on the App Store on October 11, and it’s the result of a collaboration with our friends at StageBloc. (theglitchmob.com runs on StageBloc). Our friend Joyce who drives designs for The Glitch Mob did the graphics, and Momo the Monster who ran visuals for the last Glitch Mob tour worked on the app as well.
I came up with the idea of making Mirrorgram on the Drink The Sea tour. we’re all big iphone nerds and started geeking pretty hard on iphone photo apps as a way to explore cities and kill time on the bus. I’ve had a long-running fascination with symmetry and photo editing, and i realized there was no simple way to create symmetrical images on my iPhone. At the time, i was doing it with a lot of apps that weren’t meant for that, and wanted an easier way for me and my friends to make trippy, mirrored images.
one of the coolest things is how it allows you to see stuff around you in a new way. some of the most interest images i have taken come from mundane stuff like buildings, sand, plants, or the airport:
I’m super excited for the app launch next week. in a way, making Mirrorram has been a lot like creating new music -- it’s all about creating something that hasn’t been heard or seen before.
I can’t WAIT to share it and see the mirrograms everyone comes up with!
