The Woods of Little Red Riding Hood



The Woods of Little Red is an interactive walk-in multisensory installation space with exciting areas to explore. The work is based on the scene of the fairytale where Little Red arrives at a crossroads and has to make a choice between two paths: the one mother told her to take and the one the wolf recommends.



The paths lead to different atmospheres in the maze: light green or mystical black parts. When proceeding, the springlike woods turn into a snowy winter and the shadowy woods into a colourful flower meadow. The paths marked with different colours and materials crisscross between the spaces. Sensors responding to footsteps are hidden under the path. On certain spots, a change in atmosphere is created on veiled walls with rear projected, abstract, dynamic images and electronic soundscape. The work tells about one’s choices, encounters and growing up.
