The venue is divided into three differently sized stages ("Answers & Questions", "Space & Distance" and "Physical Line"), each of which is fitted with multiple video cameras, monitors and sensors. Arranged around these are various virtual objects that maintain interactive relationships. There is no predefined way or method of experiencing the work, which allows the visitor to move freely within the exhibition space, discover the work's mechanisms, and derive his/her own rules of movement.
Video cameras and monitors
Ten video cameras set up in the exhibition space capture various parts of the scenery from various angles. The recorded images are then projected onto 23 monitors installed inside the exhibition space as well. On some of the monitors the images appear in real-time like in mirrors, on others they are delayed by a few seconds. Via these monitors, the visitor can further deepen his/her reflection on body movements.
Answers & Questions
Two 3D cameras installed on a stage measuring 3.6 x 3.6 meters detect positional information of objects inside that space. The scenery on stage is thus scanned in real-time, and superimposed with a computer-generated virtual space.Images of this virtual space are projected onto a monitor installed near the stage, on which visitors can verify the current state of the virtual space, as well as the positions of their own bodies within that space. Cube-shaped objects floating in the virtual space change their colors when in contact with a visitor's body, accompanied by all kinds of sounds.
Space & Distance
While working with the same system used in "Answers & Questions", this stage measuring 2.7 x 2.7 meters is not equipped with any screens for monitoring the relationship between imaginary and real space. Therefore the visitor can only rely on occasionally audible sounds to evaluate his/her own positional relationship with the objects floating around in the virtual space. Most of the video cameras set up inside the exhibition space are pointed at this stage.
A 3D camera set up on a 1.8 x 1.8 meter stage captures the visitor's silhouette, whereupon the trajectories of the moving tips of his/her right hand and left foot are projected onto a large screen installed in front of the stage.
