    Interactive video panorama using 4 networked computers with touchpads and microphones, 4 laserdisc players, 4 video projectors and four amplified speakers. Created with support from the NTT InterCommunication Centre, Tokyo. Original version in French; the Japanese, English, German and Finnish versions are subtitled. Synopsis: Four walls of a space are "painted", with video projectors, into a single photo realistic 360º landscape representing a public garden. The space, set in Montreal's Mont-Royal Park, is being visited by real and virtual characters. If the virtual characters appear free to come and go in the garden, real visitors will need help to walk in and explore. For this they have to make contact with one of the virtual character by selecting, using voice or touch, questions or comments from imposed sets. Questions on, for example, where they are, what is around, where one can go from here will engage a conversation leading to some form of relationship. The exchange may be cut short with everyone going back to their business or it may reach a point where visitors will convince a character to lead them somewhere. In such case, visitors are being pulled through the landscape after their virtual guide and the whole room appears to be moving in this direction. The dialogue between the guide and the visitor or group goes on and defines the progression through space. Because real visitors are using virtual characters to steer their way through space, the nature of visitor's relationship to the character will define the space - physical or metaphorical - that can be accessed. There are several possible destinations or outcome. Visitors could simply be abandoned somewhere on the way if the connection to the character is broken, or they could be reaching a destination: a lookout or a forbidden boundary. This journey through space is also a journey through words, meanings, language, subjectivity. It highlights not only the physical world in which this is happening but also its diverse meanings and functions to different people. The experience is about communication/discommunication between people with movements through space as manifestation of its nature; successful forms of communication will offer visitors more varied inroads into more remote places.

      The project CYL is an international ongoing series of conceptual installations, which examine the representation of speech, and the strategy of conviction in the terms of contemporary economic marketing structures. CYL – is researching in the process of change in the social context. What are the elements that guarantee continuity within change, and in what order represented by the system are the individuals related are to each other CYL is questioning the cultural roots. CYL works with inversion and offers no prepared explanations. The single numbers of works are marked by the progressive process and open interaction with the visitor. CYL # 1, the installation presents a video projection in a separate room (box) that has to be entered by a single person only (one to one). At the moment that the visitor steps into the room the light shuts down and the video starts. The duration of the video is about 15 minutes. The audience is asked in suggestive speech to change his/her life.

        Tom Cruise. Not running. This video is a part of Tread Light(ly), Tom, Tread Lightly is an interactive video installation that playfully examines the viewer's relationship with Tom Cruise. This installation explores some of the questions that surround interactive media. How does the addition of physical interactivity alter a viewer's relationship with on-screen characters and events? Can interaction compel responsibility? Does interactivity offer control or only the illusion of control?

          from Richard Squires / Added

          EXHIBITION: AUDIENCE RESPONSE documents viewers' reactions to Squires' interactive video installation, "Exhibition" during its installation at the Old Operating Theatre Museum, London in 2005. As the audience entered the space, they were confronted by a video image of the artist in a zombie-like stasis, staring blankly and swaying slightly. Reaching a certain proximity to the image, the viewer would trip a sensor and trigger a chain of events whereby the artist screamed, lurched forward and his guts were expelled from his belly. EXHIBITION: AUDIENCE RESPONSE contrasts the responses to the work of a group of 10 year-old visitors to the museum with a group of adults and culminates in the younger visitors repeatedly tripping the sensor and chanting at the video screen.

            Piece made in collaboration with Amir Shah Skyscraper II is an interactive installation which tackles ideas of consumerism in a capitalistic society. The preoccupation of society with materials goods and the ever-increasing desire for wealth incites over-consumption that is devastating our world. Through rapid modernization and an over-reliance on technology, barriers that separate one human from the next, are constantly rising like skyscrapers separating and overwhelming us all. The twisted cityscape of Skyscrapers II is a manifestation of the anxiety of what our world may soon become if control is not taken back into the hands of the people. The interactive dystopian environment overwhelms and intimidates the viewer as they move farther into the space. A viewer's movement and the emotions triggered by the changing landscape as they move, influence how they feel about the world that surrounds them.

                    This installation has been done in June 2010 in Modena. The video mapping was originally 2 hours of interactive installation, where the people had the possibility of starting each one of the 15 videos nested in every window of the building by covering one of the 3 "button" windows at the ground floor. In a second part of the show, instead, other clips were played as a live audio-video performance.

                      Anima Perplexa 2014 Interactive video installation, dual channel by Michel Winterberg The interactive installation Anima Perplexa renders possible the communication with the unfathomable soul of a foreign creature. Spaces for interaction open up to the people passing by – its mutating, pulsating appearance evokes associations and allows for memories to surface. The abstract structures, which evolve on a visual level, are translated to an auditive level and continuously transform and modulate the soundscape. The visitor of Anima Perplexa experiences a physical, audiovisual encounter with an indefinable other. https://www.flickr.com/photos/michel_winterberg/sets/72157644614082734
