Summary Artists Description: Moving rooms and domestic objects pass through the interior of the translucent house as we peer into it. At night they softly emanate a glow much like the glow of a television in the living room. The animated space is choreographed and timed in its movement, broadcasting the contents of the house. There is an interplay between real object and virtual object: the house is made of transparent/translucent glass while the interior objects are virtual images on the screen; total internal reflection occurs so that the image can be seen from certain angles only; the glass is a medium which distorts the animated image, while the animated image permeates the glass with its colour, movement and glow.
