The installation opens up a reduced space of experience that involves visitors directly. Reading the text installed in the room, you are confronted with your own silhouette. After a short while, another shadow appears that seemingly interacts with your own shadow, without there being another body in the room. By staging touch as an uncanny shadow play that makes your own body and another person’s body confusingly similar,the piece cautiously approaches the vulnerable border of self and other.
