Ever needed help, but nobody moved? Experience the bystander-effect in this interactive installation, that stares at you from behind.

You are surrounded by eight pedestals with plastic heads on top. You are in their midst. They stare at you. However if you try to catch a glimpse of them, they will turn away from you. All while the heads in your back stare at at you from behind.

We are very proud to have won the german multimedia award mba21 for Medienkunst 2016.
