2011 - INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION                                                                          

AR lab


SYN installation represents an artificial neural system with a constant exchange of electrical inpulses. It is realised using QuartzComposer to set a precise videomapping activated by topic related tweets on Twitter and audience web-interaction. Using a mobile device (smartphone, tablet or laptop), anybody can send a spark, a creative contribution, from the event location or all over the city. Each spark will activate the installation and can be visualized on the dedicated web app.
