Shadow Inverted is an interactive video installation inspired by a shadow as a place in absence of light. This interactive piece creates an inverted experience, where shadows are illuminated and serve as portals into an inverted imaginary world delivered in form of videos. What is light in the real world, is dark in the shadow and vice versa. By moving through the light, a person's shadow uncovers a glimpse of the world beyond, searching the unknown, without ever being able to see it all. The videos that are played inside of shadows. Each shadow displays a different video and once shadows touch each other, the videos are consumed by one video. They are made to convey travel throughs space interlaced with motives of everyday life.
