The Power of Connection is an enclosed booth designed to create an optical illusion of shared identity. Two participants at a time are asked to gaze at each other in the booth through a two-way mirror. This interactive installation amplifies interpersonal connection between the two participants, whether familiar or strangers, and allows visual boundaries to dissolve between them through controlled lighting design. This installation is not easy to describe, but wonderful to encounter. We ask: how powerful would it be to create a connection with another, without the need for words? How powerful would it be to move forward as a society, realizing our own prejudices as we gaze at the visage of a stranger, and watch them melt away into our own?
