‘Audience’ was conceived by rAndom International and executed in collaboration with Chris O’Shea. It was originally commissioned by choreographer Wayne McGregor for the Deloitte Ignite Festival at London's Royal Opera House in September 2008, and subsequently by Design Miami Basel 2009.
‘audience’ consists of a large crowd of mirror objects. As visitors approach the perimeter of the installation, the mass of mirrors choose an individual they find interesting and follow them with inquisitive, synchronised movement. The selected member of the audience is surrounded by their own reflection, tailed by the by the objects which may nonetheless lose interest and move away. This suddenly synchronised, collective behaviour is beyond the control of the viewer, left instead to the discretion of the mirrors themselves. for more information, visit random-international.com
