Me and my shadow (2012) by Joseph Hyde

http://madeshadow.wordpress.com/

“Teleport yourself into a deeply poetic experience. Connect and interact in a shared virtual space with people across Europe.“

Bekijk hier de video: http://vimeo.com/44443349

MATERIAL:

camera’s + projectie schermen + zwarte wanden

infrarood-camera’s + microfoons + speakers

TECHNOLOGY:

– principe van de XBOX Kinect; sensoren scannen het lichaam en bouwen een raster op hierdoor wordt er bij beweging een ‘shadow’ bestuurbaar gemaakt

– virtuel space; interactie tussen 4 locaties d.m.v. internetverbinding en een 5e locatie (de website) die zorgt voor de samenkomst en communicatie

EFFECT:

Intuitive, experiential and visionary, the work questions the way we communicate with others online and the traces we leave in virtual space. me and my shadow invites you to re-imagine identity and self-representation in an increasingly blended virtual/physical reality: How does it feel to see yourself and perform as an avatar? Who is who in the virtual world?
