By interacting with miniature people in a miniature floating world each participant analyzes their own behavior in the context of their own world.

The little people in this piece live in a world of three contextual islands and the only way they can move between islands is by interaction with us. The people on each island act according to each island’s context. When a person is on a Dance Island they dance, when they are on Sleep Island they sleep when they are on Boring Island they just want to get off! This is a comtentary on social context and appropriate actions for appropriate spaces. The hope is to make the viewer think about why they act certain ways in certain spaces.
