Rafael Lozano-Hemmer

Rafael Lozano-Hemmer a media artist, is best known for creating theatrical interactive installations in public spaces across Europe, Asia and America. ‘Relational Architecture’ a series of large scale interventions in public spaces used custom made technologies to transform urban space. Situated between architecture and the performing arts, his projects explore relationships between the site and the public, creating a range of social experiences. ‘Body Movies’ (above) worked by projecting the shadows of passes by on surrounding buildings. People would realise the shadow belonged to them and would begin to act differently. There are lots of good ideas along a similar theme on his website
