“Little Boxes” is a Kinect driven projection mapping (video mapping) art installation where tiny people projected onto wooden boxes are terrified of your presence. Even though they are all individuals who can move around on their own, they behave with a united mindset, always following the crowd. An added element is the interaction between the artwork and the viewer. When someone approaches the little boxes, the projected people stare up timidly; as the viewer walks past, the people start screaming and running away, deathly afraid of anything outside their comfort zone. The interactive narrative has five different “responses” that the mini crowds could have towards the giant spectator. These include hanging out when no one’s around, moving into a “fear area” when someone comes close, starting to run, hiding from a new “attack”, and escaping in groups.

She is a visual artist working with installation, video art, Live Cinema, books, photos and art direction. Her work explores the feedback between reality and representation. Understanding the “real” as individual and collective construction. She is interested in the binding sites between binomials as: real – fake, presence – absence, original and copy and is looking for those intersections that exist between them.
