Interactive Installation: OUTSIDE

outside-installation-iregular

OUTSIDE is an interactive installation of a projected frame floating in space. Everything that goes through the frame modulates the frequencies of an FM radio and controls the projected visuals.

The work was developed by Montreal-based studio, Iregular, as part of the Human Futures program of artistic exchange between Canada and Europe. The work explores how technology is making us more and more reclusive.
