Description

“Behind The Curtain” is an interactive installation that allows the user to view the world through a different point of view. A table, catalyst of the whole interaction, prompts the audience to crawl underneath, referencing the act of a child. Every time the tablecloth is raised, a new projected scene appears, portraying the world from the child point of view. Legs and feet become the main characters: personal stories, human conditions and relationships are narrated through their behavior, and the user will become at the same time innocent observer, voyeur and spectator of a secret world that we are not given a chance to appreciate, despite being always around us. The piece is intended as a playful interaction that engages the user into an unusual exploration of space, able to reveal truths only visible through a perspective change.
