At Hand

At Hand is an interactive piece designed for touch screens in public space.
The project is about urban gestures, micro spaces of the street and the possibility of encountering otherness. European flow of migration is its starting point, specifically the recent appearance of beggars in Helsinki's city spaces. How should we encounter and respond to the new gestures of plea directed towards us?

Empathic State Building

Empathic State Building

ESB is an interactive game by which meanings of cooperation, entanglement and collective consciousness are directly perceived on a physiological level. EEG-electrodes are to be mounted on the head of two players in order to assess their mental state. The players’ brain activities are rendered on real time as visual elements on the media facade behind them. By forcing themselves in an emphatic relation, they will influence the narration of the imagery.

A European Party

Nika Radic creates a European party which will be celebrated only on the screen: she films one to two party guests of each city and composes them as an ensemble in a party scenario.
In each clip a single person is at first filmed standing or sitting near a wall. The people then get ‘off the wall’ and start moving, talking, or dancing.
The single clips are controlled by a computer programme which allows the visitors to interact and manipulate the party scenario.

Nika Radic

Nika Radic is an artist and works in different media. Her main topic is the limits of possible communication: what is it that we can really understand in everyday communication but also in art. She has done several works that used facades and walls in public space that opened the wall into an imaginary space beyond.
This allowed the viewers to 'peep' into the building and see something that is going on inside… even if it was only an illusion.

Interactive concept and development: Yacine Sebti (BE)
