The Passages Installation developed at Media Lab Europe will be exhibited from the 9th to the 16th of May 2007 between La Maison Pop in Montreuil (France) and the Distance Lab in Forres (Scotland).
Passages is a public space installation that aims to connect intimately people in different cities. This installation presents the random passer-by with a moving and transiting experience where he/she has to engage the entire body to uncover the possibilities of a relationship with a stranger.
