AIWA provides an interactive experience for a home product with the promise of fully-sentient artificial intelligence. Proposed as a start-up, participants will interact with this product as part of beta-testing.
Dilate is an experiential installation that uses a scientific framework based on symbiosis. The installation gives the public an opportunity to experience a living, breathing piece of technology on their body and explore their emotional response to this relationship.
Soundline is a roaming installation that invites audiences to become experiential co-producers of their own audio-visual performance. The project focuses on collaboration, social play, musical improvisation, future entertainment and how technology can be used to facilitate a state of group flow.
