The Cube

The Cube is an interactive installation, the fruit of an extensive research project aimed to investigate the spiritual side of technology.
 
The Cube is a seemingly static, simple object made of wood and heavy at hand. At the same time, it is also the key to controlling and manipulating the space in which it stands, using a live video projection. By holding the Cube, turning and twisting it, the environment changes color and shape. Drawing inspiration from the kaleidoscope, the colors create a deep focus state, almost like meditating.

The physical, natural element of the work encounters the digital, intangible one. The clash between them characterizes our experience of technology, always in a contrasting limbo, that often feels like an act of magic.

 

 

The soundtrack accompanying the work is an original composition by the Italian musician Luigi De Crescenzo.

The installation was first presented at Blooming Festival 21.
