Now and Again 1997

 

Live, interactive video projections explored the shifting identity of Meard Street, Soho. Live images of the street were mixed with sequences recorded on previous nights and projected back onto the windows like a reflection. Residents and visitors became participants as they interacted through the images with the artists behind the scenes.
