Growth Lines

Living lines

White horizontal lines on a green background are front projected on to a large wall. Occasionaly, small dipping actions will occur, suggesting the vitality of the lines. The projector is positioned so that users' shadows will appear in the projected image once they enter the space. A webcam looks for these dark areas to instantly affect the line. The scale of the shadow will depend on where they stand in relation to the projector; this means they can manipulate the line with their whole body or with a single finger.

Early versions of the work saw mutated spiders hatching from lines swollen through user interaction. Our latest piece relies on the simplicity of the line.
