Shadows

Project | Interactive Media Installation (2002,2006)
Concept: Elisabeth Schimana
Instrument design: Andre Smirnov

In the Shadow environment visitors are invited to generate through their movements sound- and light sculptures in space and to dance with their own shadows. The installation is based on the beauty of Lev Thermens inventions like the theremin or the terpsiton in the twenties, producing sound and light with movements in the air. The body is an inalienable part of the instrument.
