Biennial of Lyon – Part 3

5 December 2007 at 6:58 pm (Exhibition, Hypermedia, Sound)

How can we refuse to dance with the ghost girl from the Shilpa Gupta‘s (invited by Pooja Sood) interactive installation?

A big screen, a camera, 5 visitors and a computer. Your shadow projected to the screen (thanks to the camera) and images are generated around you, interacting with your shadow.

A ghost girl asks you to dance, windows appear waiting for you to open theme, birds fly across the screen, and blocks fall from the sky on you.

This piece reminds me another work done by Camille Utterback, called Text Rain. Where you have your shadow projected to a screen where lines of a poem fall down and stop when they find a shadow. I’ve seen this work in Emoção Art.ficial 3.0 at Centro Cultural Itaù, in Avenida Paulista, São Paulo.
