Playing in the City is a multimedia performance using lamps as performing instruments. This virtual performance involves both a human performer and avatar performers. Light, sound, sensors, and code are the language of how avatars and the human performer interact with each other. The performance tells a story about how individual experience is a collective feeling, that our experience and emotion can resonate with each other even from far away.
