Rejane Cantoni & Leonardo Crescenti


“Floor” is an interactive interface designed to transfer strength and movement data in the human-human relation and the human-space-time relation. The action of stepping on one of the two ends of the machine produces a wave that is displaced in the direction equivalent to the action. For the other users (not interactors), it is worth noting that the wave in movement lifts the steel plate and the assemblage lifts who or what is on it.

The two work together in the development of strategies for the experimentation and implementation of audio-tactile-visual interfaces that make it possible for the public to explore and interact naturally with data banks and virtual, remote or hybrid environments.
