Rolling Shadows

Interactive installation, interactive mixed media assemblage (96 / 48 / 2 in). Miniaturized solar toy cars, shadows, sunlight.

Hundreds of miniaturized solar toy cars fill the shadows of pedestrians who are standing still. When the pedestrians walk away, the sun hits the solar cells on the cars which causes them to move. The carefully arranged pixelated silhouettes disappear leaving chaos and toy car accidents behind.

Rolling Shadows shrinks the fetish “automobile” down to the scale of an interactive sidewalk spectacle. It is an electronic flea circus of sorts – that uses tiny solar toy cars to play with our shadows and the image of our inventions.
