This interactive piece, “The Treachery of Sanctuary“, is the brainchild of director and artist Chris Milk. With it, Milk combines technology, art, and viewer participation to create a truly unique experience. A triptych of screens and a still reflecting pool sets the stage. As viewers approach, their shadows appear on the screen and one of three things happen: their shadow dissolve into a flock of birds, it’s picked apart by birds, or they become a bird. Cool stuff, that.
