The Conversation is a continuation of my work Reflection, an immersive audio and video installation where audience members entered a room and engaged one on one with a virtual character reflected in a mirror.
This time, the character is ripped from the safety of it’s womb / room and flung onto the performance stage, exposed to the entire audience. An attempt will be made to initiate conversation.
