Presentation Title:

  • Touching Existences in Public and Private spaces



  • Touching Existences is a presentation about some issues that came from a recent project called ‘4 Walls’. It is an interactive installation where the actions of the viewers may cause changes in the moving images – and the meaning we get from that. By confronting real objects (non-animated shapes) and images projected on its surfaces (short narratives) it deals with the public and private use of shared urban spaces. The presentation brings together two different issues related to new media today: the interface as a sensorial and immersive experience and the supposed lack of privacy in public spaces such as the Internet – addressed as one of the biggest problems for our civil rights for a near future.
