Screen-based Installation

Silhouette is an interactive installation using projection and motion tracking devices. Attendees are invited to immerse themselves into my photography by moving in front of the image. Each person's silhouette will appear on screen, revealing the picture behind it.

As Barthes defended in his book "Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography", the perception of one photograph changes depending on one's experiences and memories. One photo, seen by many, will become a different photo for each person, and it's our unique shape, silhouette or state that defines how this specific piece is seen.
