Under Scan (2005, 31MB, 9:51 min.)

“Under Scan” is a public art installation based on self-representation.
Thousands of “video-portraits” taken in Derby, Leicester, Lincoln, Northampton
and Nottingham are projected onto the ground; at first, the portraits are not
visible because the space is flooded by white light coming from a high-powered
projector. As people walk around the area, their shadows are cast on the ground,
revealing the video-portraits in short sequences.
