ECHOES OF ABSENCE is an interactive LED tunnel that creates a conversation between audience members, present and past. Participants speak into the tunnel and observe as their voice travels through it. Once the voice reaches the end, an echo comes back, but in the form of the voice of a past participant.
The system records messages left by people and returns them to someone else. The visual engine developed takes image loops and creates infinite configurations by displaying them in many different ways, using masks, tints and loop rearrangements.
Led panels, mirror, sound monitors, microphone.
