Winner, Award of Distinction for Interactive Art, Prix Ars Electronica 2012

It's a jungle in here is an interactive installation that explores the boundaries between what's ok and what's not in everyday encounters. Two participants become performers in a drama in which they have little control.

Video documentation of installation

Animated frame by frame using paper puppets and a diorama of the Upfield line, the work is beautifully housed in a custom designed cabinet of wonders, It's a jungle in here is an interactive installation that steals your identity and transforms you into someone you may not want to be.

It's a jungle in here is about ourselves and how our relationship with our onscreen persona affects us.
