Voluntary Confinement: House is an immersive sculpture that hangs from the ceiling and invites the viewer inside and into a reciprocal interaction with his or her own shadow. The viewer places his or her head inside of the house where, closed off from the gallery, the interior roof peak and a staircase leading up to a projected image is revealed. As the viewer starts to move, a shadow figure in the image moves as well. The live video feed is positioned beneath the translucent staircase, creating an image that both repeats and inverts the surrounding architecture. The viewer both exists within the space and is projected beyond it.
