The Entertamers [Oswajaki] installation lures us into the lively world of animals, allowing viewers/participants to interact with photography-based animations projected on a screen. A camera captures the outlines of the silhouettes of viewers that enter its field of view, modifies them and adds them to the projected image. At that point animals – insects, fish, etc, depending on the environment in the image – race in and occupy each silhouette, bouncing off the inner walls, moving randomly but behaving in species-characteristic ways. Viewers can free the animals from their contours,  race with them, move around with them or exchange them with someone else’s animals. Entertamers was produced by the Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw.
