ANDRE VICENTINI & FERNANDO VISOCKIS: CONDUCTING SENSES
“Conducting Senses” makes it possible for audiences to interact with projection mapping. Sensors enable the capture of a wide range of the user’s hands movements, making it possible to explore the interaction between sound and light, people and architecture making use of the site as a multidimensional canvas.
