Expanding the Sound Poster series, the Shy Poster furthers this inquiry into new experiences with the traditional poster medium.
This time the poster gains personality by personifying shyness in an interactive installation. If the poster is left alone its colourful inner character is revealed. However, if someone interrupts this personal comfort zone the poster immediately retracts its doors hiding itself within the conformity of its background.
Providing the new visitor is patient and tactful, the Shy Poster will become comfortable and slowly reveal its true personality. Yet, you must be careful…
Any large movements are detected by motion sensors which trigger the doors to slam shut!
