Magic Box

Interactive Documentary(2009)

Mirroring design elements from 19th century pre-cinema devices, Magic Box was created as a physical trailer for Alchemy of Light. Peering inside the box one can watch a film that is not visible to the other viewer. At dark moments, one can see through the box into the eyes of the other participant. The sliders on the front panel of the box select which film is visible to each viewer. If both people move to the far position of the slider their hands will touch.

Magic Box has exhibited at the at the Shift Festival (Basel), 3LD Art & Technology Center and the ITP Spring Gallery.
