Shadow.Me is an interactive installation that allows visitors to share their secrets anonymously and to view the secrets shared by others.
These secrets are visually embodied in the shadows of the contributors, which are scanned in a pod that is part of the installation. To share a secret, the user walks into the pod, enters his age, gender and geographic origin, and whispers his secret into the “ear” of the pod. After his shadow is scanned by sensors, he can then leave the pod. His shadow will appear on either wall of the installation after a twenty-minute delay to hide the visitor’s identity. The text of the secret will appear on the shadow’s body, and the audio track of the visitor whispering his secret will be heard over the speakers to join those of others.
