Why be normal when you can shapeshift?

Digital artists, a sculptor and a dance artist have worked together to make a place of movement, shadows and projections for you to play in. Now, come and test your powers in the world of the Shapeshifter. Nothing there stays the same – not even you! Use sculptural bits and pieces to turn yourself into a hybrid creature. Play with movement, motion tracking and real-time animation. What will you become? How will you transform the world around you? Anything is possible.
