Future Self was a performative light installation by Random International, with music by Max Richter.

Future Self studied human movement; what it can reveal about identity and the relationship we have with our own image. The installation captured movement in light, creating a three-dimensional, 'living' sculpture from the composite gestures of those who surround it. Viewers are bound together – in the moment – as an ethereal, illuminated presence.

Two dancers intensely communicated, with each other and with their own reflections, through light as well as through the body. Throughout the performance, music, artwork and the human form were unified into one immediate and emotional experience.

The creative working process began in London, England, continued in Berlin and culminated in three wonderful performances at MADE, a creative platform for artists in the heart of Berlin.
