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

Future Self studies human movement; what it can reveal about identity and the relationship we have with our own image. The installation captures 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 communicate, 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 are unified into one immediate and emotional experience.

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