“Self-reflection” aims to build an emotional connection between passers-by and an inanimate flexible screen. Utilizing rear-projection and a large fabric-covered frame the intensity of touch interactions will affect an anthropomorphic silhouette.

I hope to achieve a basic emotional connection between passers-by and the projection installation itself, experimenting with the concept of affective touch in conjunction with wholly non-living objects. By using touch and basic anthropomorphism, along with appropriate colour and sound I hope participants will see the child-like silhouette as a reflection of a younger self – including his or her hopes and dreams and the frustration or celebration in achieving or failing them.
