At The Creators Project Technology and art came together this past weekend. Treachery of Sanctuary installation by Chris Milk is one of the standout works at Fort Mason.
At once beautifully serene and violently foreboding, the interactive work took visitors through three different experiences of flight. The series of 16-foot by 22-foot tall projections had visitors take center stage—transforming their shadows with a succession of Hitchcockian poetic gestures using motion-sensing Kinects. The first panel saw the shadow decompose into a flock of birds, the second had birds swooping down to tear the shadow apart in a scene straight out of Birds (and our worst nightmares), and the third transformed visitors into bird-like creatures with impressive-looking wings.
