is an interactive shadow installation for public spaces. It was designed
in collaboration with Daniel
Sauter and Osman
Khan under the collective name CTRL. The images of the users, as captured
by a video camera, are processed by a computer through a customized piece
of software programmed in C++.
The software controls the reaction of the graphic elements on a large
screen, creating an environment in which the audience can play with their
shadows and the dynamic graphics interactively.
The event took place in the context of a public concert and fundraising
party. The shadows of users dancing to the live music were showered with
a drizzle of colorful flowers. At random, the pleasant scene took an unexpected
twist: the flowers turn into a rain of bombs, exploding upon touching
the shadow of the participants. The sudden change created a moment on
suspension in the puzzled audience, shifting their perception of the situation
they were immersed in.
