Andreas Haider [aka muk] is a media artist, and cameraman, living and working in Vienna. The fields of his creativity are cinema, video installations, exhibitions, video performance. “Skia”, from Greek “shadows” is a digital installation. If a person is moving inside the installation s/he is detected by an infrared camera. This image is processed and manipulated by a software program. The manipulated image is projected as a faked artificial shadow by a video projector. The installation examines the interplay of our shadows and our conscious awareness of our physical displacement of space. What does it mean if one’s shadow suddenly frees itself and develops an alien autonomy? And what has such an estrangement in common with the multiple identities of the post modern ego?
