FILE FESTIVAL 2015 Rejane Cantoni & Leonardo Crescenti - PAREDE  (2)

FILE SAO PAULO 2015 – INSTALLATION

Rejane Cantoni & Leonardo Crescenti – WALL

Abstract:
“PAREDE” is a kinetic, interactive structure made from 45 mirror finished aluminium sheets which, in a chain reaction, rotate 180°. The chain reaction happens according to the visitors’ actions. Just like domino, when someone passes by one of the installation’s extremities, they trigger an action mechanism; the sheets turn, one by one, until they rotate.
