Words of the Jury: “Very good exploratory excercise about a possible interactive community, sometimes the huge ambition of ideas (electric, spatial flux) are beyond what has been expressed graphically. It’s a very stimulating trigger to the imagination of the viewer””This piece searchs to bond one of the key axis I considered essential with the code/tool: to make data move beyond the screen, and therefore use the human body as interface. One of the ky aspects too is the way it tries to involve emotional/sensitive aspects for the viewer/expectator.”Eventough all of the projects are very interesting indeed, this last one went beyond the traditional interaction excercises made with Processing”.
