The Dandelion Field is an interactive video installation which draws a comparison between a common plant (the dandelion) and human beings. Through computer assisted video processing, the participants' movements on a patch of grass generate a dynamic urban landscape (both aural and visual) onto a projection screen. In the location where the feet touch the grass, the audience will see buildings popping up in the projection.
