Interactive artwork and data capture commissioned for Sparks children’s digital festival at Phoenix Arts centre, Leicester
Setup: a fixed iPad in front of the large cafe video wall. Participants can interact actively or passively –

In active mode, visitors use the iPad to select their chosen future career, age and appearance. They will then see themselves immediately reflected as a hand illustrated avatar on the screen which mimics their body movements.
Their avatar will be stored in a database and displayed to subsequent visitors.

In passive mode, any visitor who walks in front
of the screens will be reflected as one of the previously saved avatars. If they jump then their character will change to a different one

music: Chilly Gonzales – White Keys (from SOLO PIANO II)
