A deeply immersive experience consisting of four separate portals in London, Paris, Istanbul and Brussels, me and my shadow is an international telepresence experience by UK Artist Joseph Hyde.
“Teleport yourself into a deeply poetic experience. Connect and interact in a shared virtual space with people across Europe.”
me and my shadow invites you to interact and perform with other remote users in an endless dream. In a richly aesthetic experience, the installation enables you to project your full body into a virtual world, to play with your shadow representation and to sculpt 3D shapes.
Dance with strangers, virtually feel, touch and breathe, meet your friends or family in Brussels, Istanbul or Paris.
me and my shadow will premiere at the National from 10 - 26 June 2012 as part of National Theatre Inside Out.
