Interactive video installation
In this playful interactive installation, viewers approach a video mirror to find themselves infested by tiny versions of previous viewers. In their attempts to catch or move these little gnomes, the present viewers simultaneously see and lose themselves, becoming landscape, environment, and architecture for the tiny ghosts. While so engaged, their own video presence is being recorded, ready to hop down onto unexpected viewers in future visits.
