Participatory video installation

Encounters is an invitation to play, explore and feel. It’s a participatory video installation that aims to empower audiences to actively interact with the community they live in and promote social inclusion.

Audiences are invited to establish a dialogue with each other using their hands and interact through the sense of touch. This live interaction is projected onto the installation space and accompanied with live music which enhances the performative experience.

By getting participants to focus on their hands, we are able to foster an empathic behaviour between people who may not share the same cultural background nor have the same physical appearance, and therefore promote a dialogue between them.

This activity is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
