Falling

Site-specific intervention for a tree and its (augmented) shadow.

In cooperation with Riccardo Torresi and Mani Sharma.

Falling is a minimalist yet playful intervention on how to interweave physical and virtual realities. In the installation, light is projected onto a birch tree, casting a shadow on the wall behind it. Without any further comment, a handle hangs down from the treetop on a chain.

When a visitor steps close to the handle, his own shadow becomes part of the shadow play on the wall. When he pulls the chain, a handful of leaves comes falling down from the treetop - but only in the shadow's reality.
