Imago Dixit, an interactive installation for painting, sound & realtime gesture capture is exposed at Alef Gallery.

14-17 May 2009
Technopolis, Athens, Greece
Imago Dixit is exposed at the Athens Video Art Festival.
The interaction between image and sound in a physical way is the primary concern of this interactive installation. The viewer becomes a listener by touching the artwork. For every drawing there is a hidden sound-world that waits to be discovered by tactile interaction, hence the work is considered unfinished without the contribution of the audience. The way the system has been designed allows the user to unfold the piece of music at his/her own pace, probably also discovering elements through sound that the eye overlooked.

How to Play: Place your palm on the paintings exploring the soundscapes.
