Designs are created to be understood and enjoyed at a glance, requiring no attention span. Most people in our society have the luxury to slow down and watch, but do not take the time. Television puts people in a comatose state without giving them a blank frame between shows to even think about something else. Still Standing is an installation that invites participants to stay motionless and contemplate its poetic content.
Still Standing consist of an amalgam of characters projected on the wall as if they were resting on the floor. When a participant walks in front of the projection, the first reaction of the text is to act as if it was being kicked, pushed by the user's feet. The user can keep moving around, pushing the text left and right. When the participant stops for a short moment, the text will be attracted towards the user's position and will move up, like water soaking his body. The participant can then enjoy a motionless moment and contemplate the textual content that becomes more and more legible. When the user is done and decides to start moving again, the text falls back to the floor and wait for a new interaction.
