Shadows of Light

Contemplative interactive digital video installation exploring the concept of “slow interaction” where the visitor is rewarded for standing still.

Rather than responding to quick movement, it requires viewers to slow down and stand still, when it will slowly take the viewers silhouette and uses it as a digital stencil, ‘spraying’ paint that starts to drip and spread into the silhouettes of others.
