White Square was produced thanks to a residence of Hanna Haaslahti at iMAL facilities in Brussels during summer 2002, and a residence of Yves Bernard at Kiasma, Helsinki in January 2003.
Shadows are a kinetic lifeform, which are programmed from pre-edited image sequences and projected around the user according to his movements. In the
creation of visuals, the natural laws of real-life shadows were studied and adapted as a basis of the visual development for their artificial counterpart. The shadows were enhanced with new set of kinetic behavior patterns, which is the visual language that allows them to respond to users.
White Square video motion tracking system allows intuitive and full body interaction of users.
