Space between us

Elvin Xingyu Ou

"Space between us" is a spatial boundary that allows people from two separate space to communicate and interact through light.


“Space between us” is an exploration of human interaction in an architectural scale that focuses on transforming the individual experience into a collaborative connection through light. The project is composed of a set of two screens suspended back to back with a light matrix embedded in between them. The lights are activated by data that is collected from two cameras on opposite sides of the screen that capture movement, which is then live processed and displayed on the respective screens. Users will be physically separated by the panels but will visually perceive the other side's movement, similar to seeing through a filtered window.
