This work is based on one of the nine interactive public art installations designed during a 2 week workshop, Interactive Patina of Culture, in Taicang, China. The theme for this installation is Replication.

We wish to reflect upon the replicative nature of the many activities and vocations in our daily lives. The interaction aids this reflection. Approaching the installation, you will find your image projected, replicated and delayed multiple times with several effects. Change the outcome of the installation through movement which flows like a wave to each subsequent panel. Therefore what we do today impacts tomorrow. Static motions with minimal change and effort result in a progressively bland, colourless and disintegrating image. While with increased effort and change our image and consequently our lives are more vibrant and interesting.
