Mirror, an interactive follow up to Sour’s Award-winning “Hibi No Niero, has been awarded gold for media innovation and non-broadcast media at the Art Directors Club global awards in New York. The music video for Japanese band Sour‘s “Mirror” track, best viewed in Chrome or Safari, pulls in video from users’ webcam, Twitter and Facebook accounts. The song ‘Utsushi Kagami’ (Mirror) sings about the fact that everything and everyone around you is a mirror that reflects yourself. You can find who you are in the reflection of others.
