Interactive scenic installation
A paper city in the center of the room. A labyrinth city. Video projectors, shadows, sensors, Arduinos, torch lights, ceramic objects, LEDs and surround sound create a world that changes depending on the viewers’ actions.
His movements and the different places he illuminates with a torch light determine multiple dramaturgic possibilities, creating a unique and unrepeatable experience. Ephemera.
In this city, this maze, exist places everyone wants to enter and others everyone wants to escape from. There is also lost places on the way towards nowhere. Evanescent shadows, hardly intuited and the exodus, loss, desperate escape, death but also life and here and there a smile. There is also history, our history, always present and always forgotten. And the future, yes it’s also there. Nothing changes, or almost nothing. Just as before, yes, just as now and also just as tomorrow.
There are so many changes and they are so slow, that we get accustomed without realising it. Social, geopolitical, cultural changes… Some of them hardly perceptible, from others happen so far away that we feel immune from them. But everything arrives.
Life passes quickly in front of the TV. Quick and distant, just as if it didn’t belong to us… We are so comfortable with our own problems… So save at the same time. It will never happen, we tell ourselves. I feel secure in my house, in my neighbourhood, in my country…
But any day of any month, in a fraction of seconds or in 10 years, which is the same in this case, something happens and our environment disappears forever. Explications, arguments, causes and culprits in abundance. There are many and each one has and prefers its own. It’s not the tome to talk. It’s time to survive. Time to go away, to leave behind and never return. Here everything has come to an end. Everything. We have only the horizon is left.
