2011// Pacman (Gendarmes v Burqas)

This is a reworking of the classic video game into a installation. The major pattern in the work is drawn on gallery wall and then the video is mapped into the drawing.

I have not documented this work as it presented such a big technical challenge and in the end the documentation was detrimental to the experiential value of being in the space.

Paper, wire, masking tape, bamboo skewers and string

Around the same time that the French ban on the burqa was being debated I was making these little shadow puppets.
