“Overlaps” is a site-specific interactive audiovisual installation. It examines the relationship between the audience and their interaction by augmenting their presence through auditory and visual representation. Here, each member of the audience becomes an embodied instrument, capable of producing a wide range of sounds. As members of the audience move, audio and visual response, relative to this movement is created. The audience is invited to explore and re-define their relationship with others while co-creating a generative spatial audiovisual system.
