Together with Another is an interactive installation which gives users a sensation of meeting others in parallel worlds.
The installation is made up of 9 see-through silk-screen frames in various sizes. The frames are hung from the ceiling so that the space would be divided to two parts. Users at two sides of the frames could see different parts of their own shadow and also the shadow of the opposite user being mapped and painted on these silk screens, as like users are in parallel worlds. The shadows would be shown and faded in certain rhythm according to the speed of users' movement.
The overlapped area of shadows from two sides would change color. The more they overlapped, the stronger the color change could be. In this way we want to design a sensation that when two strangers meet and doing the similar thing at the same time, they would have a kind of intimacy in parallel world although they do not meet each other in the real world.
(My partner and I are now improving the visual and sound feedback as well as the interaction process after the first user test.)
