This installation offers a playful experience for the viewers who are invited to form shapes as they pleased with rectangle cards (the artists’ business cards) placed upon a light table. Moving and placing the cards they reveal scenes from real time video taken at the venue. These active viewers-participants are forming and controlling the video that is being projected, for all the people passing by that passively experience the artwork visual being formed. The final video is also going through a real time transformation that gives it dreamy fantasy qualities.
