The spiral of memory

Interactive video installation

AKIMOTO Ruriko [Japan]


A spiral of layered translucent screens forms the stage for this interactive installation, a multi-projection exploration of memory and recall. Vivid videos at the center are projected from four directions, while phantasmic images adorning the corridor appear blurred and distorted in places, expressing pieces of fragmented memories. Each time a visitor picks up an image while proceeding toward the center of the spiral, its outlines grow clearer.
