Rolling Shadows: interactive installation

Roland Graf

Rolling Shadows is an interactive sidewalk spectacle in which hundreds of miniature solar toy cars are placed side by side in the shadows of pedestrians. As the pedestrians walk away, the sun hits the solar toy cars and causes them to drive in all directions dissolving the carefully arranged pixelated shadow image. This installation was first realized as a side attraction during a car cruise event in Detroit, Michigan, USA. Since then, it has been shown in numerous public spaces and galleries.
