Shifting Intimacies is an interactive/media artwork that invites the participant to meditate upon and witness the human body disintegrating and transforming whilst in motion. On entering a large, dark space, the participant views two circles of projected body imagery, one upon white sand and the other upon white dust. The space is coated in dust particles and participants engage through sight, sound movement and touch, carrying with them a handful of dust to shed wherever they wish. Sounds sweep up and down the space, whilst participants’ movements direct and affect the image and audio experience. This immersive work invites differing states of meditation, exploration, stillness and play.
