Your Shadow

 

Your shadow is an interactive multimedia performance/installation/video that explores the phenomenon of surveillance, which is becoming increasingly rampant in our society. As your actions and activities leave a digital and physical footprint behind, is your shadow safe and protected, or is it being exploited? How are your movements and actions being tracked? What is at stake as your shadows are being constantly monitored online and offline? The sonic and visual interaction will capture the formation of shadows and vestiges. In this performance, the performer will swing left and right in front of the camera while improvising on the violin, and as this happens, the electronic sound will be triggered simultaneously, and the gradations of the shadows that follow the performer will be shown.  This performance will raise viewers' awareness in regards to the unconscious habitual activities that may have potential risky consequences and implications.
