Recombinant Realities

This installation includes animated pictures of people moving, originally taken by chronograph pioneer Eadweard Muybridge (1885), which show the first attempts in history to sample the behaviors of human beings in a mechanical way. In addition, this room becomes increasingly agitated by the movements of the visiting avatar, and tries to capture the user inside its digital, agitated tentacles. Visitors receive virtual flowers as a kind of electronic reward, while colors, sounds, heartbeats and geometries change according to the energetic value of their activities. When the accumulated energy fades away after a certain period of inactivity, the space will react and try to provoke its visitor to provide more input.
