The work DOORS is a media installation in an urban space. Through the form of door frames, people interactively view different films taken in the same location. Each door opens onto a different time and space. By standing in front of a door, we start a journey through time and imagination. Our presence activates different interactive narrative video segments, past or future. Through these stories the work seeks to awaken hidden feelings about this place.
This work of public art was designed and created by Active Creative Design. The video works that are an integral part of the interactive process come from three contemporary artists engaged in different genres: documentaries, dance and visual art.

“The city is a stage, and my morning ride on the MRT is a prelude to performing.”
When using a camera to record the faces of local residents, even a documentary format cannot fail to reveal the performance with which life is imbued.
I Fen TUNG, Loading City
The phrase “Loading City” is a homonym of the message “Program Loading” that frequently appears on computer and smartphone screens. The proliferation of cell phones and Internet information in modern society has created a situation in which certain areas of the city landscape have been unconsciously forgotten.
Robin KOBRYNSKI & imagenumérique™, STATIC
The urban landscape defines a common environment for all the inhabitants of the city. Its aesthetic carryies strong visual forms related to the collective unconscious. Sometimes, this every day environment appears frozen to us: only the flow of people and vehicles provides a bustling and vibrant vision of the city. The work STATIC offers to the public a representation of this sensation.
