Me and my shadow (2012) by Joseph Hyde

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

Bekijk hier de video:


camera’s + projectie schermen + zwarte wanden

infrarood-camera’s + microfoons + speakers


– 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


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?
