Echoes is a photo-visualisation installation.

It represents large collections of images as an impressive and cohesive whole – a giant mosaic constructed from thousands of smaller images.

The mosaic tracks audience members as they move around the space, allowing them to interact with it in different ways, at different levels of engagement.

At a distance, it mirrors their appearance by selectively swapping the images it displays. When audience members move closer to the mosaic, the photos ‘bloom’ and magnify to greet them. While enlarged, photos list relevant metadata alongside them – dates, places, people.
