Through some trial and error, and several critiques that were prefaced with "let me explain how this is really supposed to look", I changed the installation half-way through the week. Following the vision I had originally, this is what I ended up with. The walls are makeshift brown paper, but the general idea is visible. The viewer walks through the fabric panels toward the projection on the back wall, guided by a drawn path on the ground and the sound that goes along with the projection. As viewers walk over the lines on the ground they erode and create new footprints. Ideally the back wall would be closed off, creating a dark wall for the projection, and the front will have controlled light to illuminate the panels. Please excuse the iphone image quality (rather, the lack thereof).
