Like magic, animated characters inhabit the shadows that are made by passers-by’s. Once a shadow appears on the wall of the President Kennedy Pavilion, a small animated character appears, out of thin air. Viewers are fascinated by their interaction with the characters, so direct and intimate. The animations are inspired by the Danish game Limbo and by animated shadow prince and princess films. The characters are fun and expressive, reacting in almost human-like ways. The shadows created by the viewers – become the entire universe for the small characters to live in and explore.
Halfway between a game and an interactive animated film, this experience is intended to be a poetic reflection on loneliness and its relationship to human interactions and society at large.
