MeYouAndUs (2011)

MeYouandUs is a series of three artworks that encourages visitors to interact with them, allowing each passer by to create their own narrative in the most playful way. The installations consist of large plasma screens, a video camera and a personal computer. The video camera records and creates a virtual reflection of the spectators in the plasma screen. This image is then digitally manipulated in real time using custom software created for each of the following three themes. Each of these pieces requires different levels of involvement - from an instant reaction to a gradual response - and asks how does this representation of ourselves shift and change, and how do we relate to these different identities?
