Description:  The work was part of a series of explorations where the viewer becomes an integral part of the work, The viewer's shadow became interlaced into the artwork with overlapping projections. The image was projected twice and offset a bit from two extreme angles.  When the viewer walked in front of the screen her shadow became interlaced in the video image because her shadow filled with imagery from the other projection.
Part of the Collection: The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, Florida.
