Reflection of the Age Interactive Installation

Reflection of the Age

Juraj Kotian created an installation that would react to movement. The closer the viewer gets to the structure, the closer is gets to him. Once the viewer crosses a specific boundary, it goes back to its starting position to literally escape from the viewer’s touch.
