Something only exists if somebody feels it. To perceive it mentally and physically, one must feel it and interact with it. From these two premises space becomes real in the eyes of the observer. Until that point, space exists but isn’t part of one’s imagery. This project creates a real space that constantly moves and manipulates itself, without needing to interact with someone. From the moment one enters the data matching, this space seizes to exist in a parallel universe and comes into existence in the observer's imagination. The development of this work was based on the attempt to communicate between computers/computer and computer/human. The project is a complete system that establishes the communication between two computers. One produces the visuals and the other the audio. The production of each content depends on the other and there’s always real-time communication between the visual and audio. When a person is detected by the system, there are new variables that manipulate the current, influencing both the audio sound and the visuals. The human is inserted in this conversation between computer/computer, creating a more complex system of computer/human/computer.

THE CITY v3.0
Format: Ligth, Interaction
Reality: Feminine noun 1. Quality of what’s real. 2. Fact’s existence. 3. What really exists; real thing. 4. Set of all real things. = REAL ≠ FANTASY, FICTION, UNREALITY. The human being invented reality… He classified and transformed into a law on which most people manage their lives. When we act differently from many possible variations that allow a healthy life in society. Today, scientists and other kind of socially credible professionals defend the theory in which the Earth (the only planet where human life is confirmed) is a tiny point in a vast universe. The scale of this universe is still too big for human comprehension. In reality, the human being should get a partner, a house, a stable job, constitute a family and respectfully live in society. Actually, if all the time of the Cosmos were a year, it would have been 1 hour and 45 minutes since the monkey appeared until todays. It is impossible to represent the space of the human mind with images, mainly because the human mind is not static, our thoughts are in constant motion. We represent our idea of what would be this space... A City where information comes together. We can partially control this city, where we are, where we are going and some stimuli that interest us... But the city has its own will and it will always control us. Technically we are talking about a virtual space controlled by a remote, in which to each button we associate an action and our presence in this space is represented by a non-human form.

The project has emerged from a new spacial perspective. We were sensitively searching to transport the human being to a new imaginarium created in real time. This imaginarium receives the physical world inputs on a formal level, visual and audio. We have as an objective to transport the human being inside of a new city that is transforming itself on a temporal scale. The hardware and software of the city present themselves on a minor scale, different from the one that the observer is accustomed. In this way we try that the human being has an almost divine relation with the created space. Technically it’s used a curve plan of projection that was hand drawn, 3 projectors and a system of sound that creates the immersive moment, There was constant research in between the physical and the imaginarium on an audio and visual level. As much as the moment of the performance as well as all the process was a search about the relation of the real, the imaginarium and the human being, as a part of those two.

Static vs Physic
Format: Ligth, Audio, Building
We live in a world of dualities. Components and interactions that generate moments. Moments that exist on a scale that our perception may or may not understand. Our perception is just one more in a universe of perceptions. This is where conflicting perceptions arise. The place where we live only exists in the relationship between the static and physical environment. A static environment that we render through our perception and another that we can not process with our senses. The perceptible minimum unit of time is 1/25 second for Humans, which means that shorter intervals for the human eye does not perceive the matter. The perception of movement is limited by our observation system. How is that environment that we can not perceive? We see our environment as a static elements projected in a human temporal dimension. But more and more we realize that the environment in which we live is a living organism, which depends not only on assumptions static elements, but rather the relationship between perception and the elements. Depending on the scale or the precession method we are able to achieve different results. Today we are aware of these opposites. We are in the time of contrasts. We understand the complexity of the world and we build our individuality in a perspetic system. Every object is twofold without resemble the two halves, being a physical image and the other current image. This intends to confront the static with the physical: substance and the projected energy not perceived by the senses. The physical materiality is constructed by the perception over time of the experiment. We propose the dematerialisation of architecture and the search for a framework that not conceptualises the space of form but the time of the experience.

From the atomic to the cosmic, we’ve established a new reality where plans, shapes and textures, that opened an alternative dimension in between the physical and the virtual space, erasing the limits and introducing a new reality to the audience, where the physical world is overlaid with the virtual transforming the original space. The human body was surrounded and was an active part of the experience. It was immersed into an environment of textures and sounds that manipulated and distorted reality, giving it a new perception of space. The new reality was made out of structures that appeared and disappeared, becoming an integral part of a shifting movement where the scales switched creating an abstract environment. As a result, the stage becomes an immersive visual environment that arises from a mutual interaction between sound and Man.
THE CITY v1.0

Everything we perceive derives directly from our perception. What we see, what we smell, we touch, what we hear, what it tastes like ... What we feel. These devices that allow us to understand the world affect our perception about it, that is the world as we know, that only exists for us. Our research for this study was based on this notion of the senses and how we can use them, explore them and take them further, in order to also evolve our perception of things. The work was to produce a sculpture to be experienced through the visual, auditory and tactile devices, in order to understand how the human being reacts in relation to an object that is not on his routine, how he interacts and how he understands. The sculpture was tested by many individuals of different ages and sexes, and each reacted differently and always associated it to something they already knew, something that already existed in their imagination ...
THE CITY v0.01
Do you remember how it was in the beginning? with this loud noise when it was connecting, grrr... irrrr... it would take 2 weeks to download only one music. There is much to learn from the digital to apply to the analog, I believe that there is also a code in the world that repeats itself in the universe, I call it “Flow” and the most accurate writings I’ve read about this are the buddist ones. Buddhism is not about worshiping a god and do as he says, but to understand the natural way of things, not to force your way on them and learn to move with them. It’s a movement that focus itself on the understanding of the universe or the universal code (space).If one can understand this he can perform some magical acts, such as, create Ligth in the night, or make fire appear with a click of our fingers... Have you thought about it? now it’s normal, nobody does, but can you imagine if you appeared in the first centuries with these tools? You would be performing magic! You would be a magician! A God! Right now we’ve opened a door to a diferent dimention (or to the code of this dimention). Here in this “digital world” we have the tools to materialize our own dreams (visualy)... But then if you materialize them they are neither dreams, or your own... Where am I? What am I? Why do I care? Time is a human concept. We invented a line, an infinite line where everything is happening... one man cathing his dog’s faeces, another man riding his sci-fi car with holograms inside, another man conquering a city with his sword and his army... Imagine that it’s possible for you to watch the whole line, a sequence of infinite actions and subjects doing these actions, you could see the action and the action after this action together. It’s not an idea of travelling, it’s more like an Idea of no (time). As humans we’ve learned how to leave traces so the future generation can evolve from our theories, the idea is complex, as if the subject is not important, as if the human race is something like a big body that is always renewing itself, it’s a form of evolution completely different from any other that we can see with a naked eye (is it?). The thought that what I will see or do until I die (if I’ll die) will allways be limited by my human nature, made me really angry at the time. Life itself is something magic, but where is life happening?. If you could change your scale into a micro scale and enter a simple rock, you could see lots of reactions, infinite, probably some universes, probably some planets and probably some of them with energy (life). Everything is infinite, the rock is as infinite as the universe, as infinite as you. So where are we? On a room, on a house, on a zone, on a city, on a country, on a continent, on a world, on a galaxy, and we could go on untill the last thing known by Man. If you think about this the possibilities for the answers we seek are also infinite. Although our thoughts and personalities depend directly from our inputs, The idea of imagination resembles the idea of freedom (infinite) but in reality imagination has a limit, the limit is your own life, what you see, what you learn, what you experience... You are the limit for your own imagination, without yourself your mind too would be infinite.
