Screen Threshold

Reality: What we perceive as reality is a tiny detail from the field of possibilities surging around us, which our nervous system has realized through computation. If all reality is a computation from possibilities, then "reality" is a threshold value.
[Vilém Flusser]

Screen Threshold is an interactive installation created for an exhibition in Stockholm's Cultural House. The installation consists of two main sides - a small virtual creature, that is dancing behind the screen, reacting to physical forces coming from the outside. This was made possible through a device attached to the glass on the other side, so the visitor can blow on it, switch it, magnetise it. This very direct attack on the virtual side resulted in something mesmerising, the small tangible environment became one with the media, the glass threshold of the screen became blurred.
