In an empty space, a glowing arch seems to float in mid-air. Your imagination runs wild: what if it were a magic portal? You put your arm through the huge hoop, then your head, then your whole body ... Ta-daa! It’s quite astounding! 

A highly sophisticated and joyfully light-hearted interactive installation, Liminal invites you to play with your image. Thanks to hidden sensors and a screen facing the luminous ring, your movements produce a strange soundtrack as your reflection is repeatedly stretched, twisted, multiplied and distorted! 

Have you, like Alice, gone through the looking-glass?
