Title: I'Myth: zapping mobile zone
Year: 2006
Project Description: I'Myth: zapping mobile zone is an interactive installation that allows people to dialogue with the collective memory of myths of human culture (e.g. Marilyn Monroe, Princess Diana, Frida Kahlo, Evita Peron, John Kennedy, Senna, Pele, Che Guevara, Elvis Presley). Entering in the room, neons presents silhouettes of myths' objects and a videoclip explores media fragments of images and sounds. The interactions with a complex system are activated through the selection and presentation to a barcode reader of labeled objects placed in a transparent table/altar, framed by the neons energy. Emergent states occur in the room: myths' faces are projected on the large screen, at left. Simultaneously, the words of the barcode label that characterize the myths call a search engine on the Internet, returning sentences that are written on the rotating faces. Cellular phones may be used to send messages to the myths, being answered by sentences written in similar net searches. It's the global memory, in an open system, bringing acts and values related to myths'characters available in the planetary database. On a second screen, at right, three-dimensional rendered objects belonging to the selected myths are displayed in stereoscopy. They appear configuring an ephemeral existence of virtual objects, contrasting with the material ones that populate the room.
