Metropolis is composed of two interactive video projections using high resolution video projectors and three computers with an infra-red remote visual sensing system for viewer interaction. The floor projection is of an overhead view of the cities of New York and Bagdhad. When viewers walk upon the image it is distorted and torn apart. Interaction causes various areas of the projection to switch between the two cities. The wall projection displays landscape format images of the two cities, again distorted by viewers in a similar manner to the floor projection. The piece uses object oriented and behavioural programming techniques.
