Interactive digital installation at Aberystwyth Arts Centre (2012). I was one of 10 UK artists working with a Portuguese technical theatre team led by Joao Garcia Miguel to produce installations powered by Xbox Kinect.

 

In my piece, the viewer is invited to confront mortality and aspects of their own personality. Lying in a box of earth (the actual soil is held away from them to keep their clothes clean) they look up through tree branches and a figure made of twigs materialises above them. The figure mirrors their movements and they eventually realise that they are looking at themselves.
