Vacant City Ghosts Vacant City Ghosts

Interactive installation, FILE, Sao Paulo (2007)

A real time video installation in which a manipulated video cam stream and two projectors were used. The image was back-projected and presented as a mirror, but the spectator couldn't see him- or herself in the mirror but a ghostlike shadow. Sometimes, arbitrarily, the cam took a still photo from which the "ghost" would leave. Exhibited at FILE, Sao Paulo in in 2007 and supported by IASPIS (International artists studio program in Sweden).
