"Sandbox" at Santa Monica Beach (2010) by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer.

"Sandbox" is a large-scale interactive installation created originally for Glow Santa Monica, CA. The piece consists of two small sandboxes where one can see tiny projections of people who are at the beach. As participants reach out to touch these small ghosts, a camera detects their hands and relays them live to two of the world's brightest projectors, which hang from a boom lift and which project the hands over 8,000 square feet of beach. In this way people share three scales: the tiny sandbox images, the real human scale and the monstrous scale of special effects.
