Hand From Above

Hand From Above encourages people to question their normal routine instead of allowing themselves to simply rush from one destination to another. Passers-by will be playfully transformed by a giant hand from an urban screen. Unsuspecting pedestrians will be randomly tickled, stretched, flicked or removed entirely in real-time by a digital deity. Actions change depending on how crowded the scene is or weather conditions. Originally commissioned by the Abandon Normal Devices festival.

Toxic Lesbian

Collaborators: Paolo Portaluri, Cinthia Mendonça, Raül Leiva and Dagan Wald.

Toxic Lesbian emerges in 2005 as an artistic and lesbian activist. The artistic model of Toxic Lesbian goes from pure artistic language to virtual and live action, creation and investigation processes. An essential concept of their proposals is to generate works that do not have a commercial format but ephemerals and easy to disseminate ones. Performances and video art productions are the link with the visual language that will generate documentaries about collective social interaction and other testimonies related to the project.

Air Hunger

The project creates a large-scale interactive projection, where the breathing pattern of a participant generates a landscape for a virtual character to move.
People can participate in the projection by wearing a wireless breath rate-monitoring belt around their chest. The belt is given to one person at a time and he/she can walk freely in front of the projection area, while producing an undulating landscape in real time via the Bluetooth modem.

The Artvertiser

The Artvertiser is an urban, hand-held 'Improved Reality' project that re-purposes street advertisements as the surface for exhibiting art. Instrument of conversion and reclamation, The Artvertiser situates the 'read-only', proprietary imagery of our public spaces as a 'read-write' platform for the presentation of non-proprietary and critically engaging content.

City Sleep Light

keep reading
City Sleep Light

City Sleep Light makes a radical move by transforming a whole building into the sleep light of the city, akin to the sleep light of a computer. All the lights are pulsing together in an organic rhythm, turning the building into a living organism.

Computed from the current global socio-economic activity of the city, the rhythm of pulsation differs each night and changes from one place to another.

For the festival, City Sleep Light will be visible in each city, literally connecting inhabitants through multiple adaptations of the project on the facades.

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.
