In the Woods 是由瑞士藝術家Camille Scherrer所創作的互動式投影裝置,曾於紐約白晝之夜、日內瓦光雕藝術節、克羅埃西亞Hartera電子音樂季等大型國際藝術季展出。藝術家從孩童時期居住的阿爾卑斯山區環境汲取創作靈感,以極簡手法塑造魔幻光影空間,打破互動裝置與擴充實境的界線。

民眾透過投影裝置將會看見自己的影子進入真實與虛幻的世界之中,化身各種森林中的動物,可以靠近,觸摸,透過感應裝置觸發森林裡的動物,使其變化出各種不同的動作姿態。

In the Woods is an installation by the young and upcoming artist Camille Scherrer, which has already been presented at Nuit Blanche in New York (October 2011), Mapping Festival in Geneva (May 2011), and Hartera Festival in Croatia (July 2011).
The installation offers the viewers a new vision of his/her own shadow, between reality and the virtual world. Inspired by les alpes vaudoises region where the artist grew up, Camille created a imaginary world populated by animals. Playing with the effect of tromp l’oeil, scaling, and camouflage, the artist explores the new possibilities of Interactive installation and augmented reality with her installations. The viewer sees his own shadow surrounded by animals on the wall and could approach, touch, or even direct the shadow into various scenarios.
