The Living Room utilises remote visual sensing systems and large scale video projection so as to immerse the viewer in a series of interactive spaces. The work is distributed through four seperate spaces. Each space contains a part of the human body, often in multiple, and each object is independently interactive with the viewers. The viewers may navigate the work by walking from room to room. The body is seen to be distributed over an architectural structure. The work was developed and exhibited as part of The Living Room project, an open studio/laboratory/exhibition space during 1994 in Whitechapel, London. " --
