Future Self presents viewers with their full-length body image, three-dimensionally distributed as tiny points of light. Quoting the minimalist tradition, RANDOM INTERNATIONAL has reduced the resolution of the reflected form significantly, but without impeding its recognition. A slight delay in the depiction offers an encounter with the self-image that is immediate yet ethereal. Future Self studies human movement: what it reveals about our identity, the relationship we have with our own image and with others. The installation is extensively explored in a contemporary dance piece choreographed by Wayne McGregor and scored by Max Richter.
