1953 – 2013 Interpreting the World

Client: AIIC

Type: interactive exhibit.

Place: Fabbrica del Vapore (Milano 2013).

Technology: Visual C++, Direct3D, DirectShow, OSC.

Description: an exhibit to celebrate the 60th anniversary of AIIC. Twin interactive installations. Words randomly dance around the floor. Stepping on them, they run away, to form the words of a famous sentence from a famous personality. And then you can listen to the original sentence and to its translation.

protoTypo

Client: OrfWare

Type: interactive videoinstallation.

Place: Frontiers of Interaction 2013 (Fiera Milano City 2013).

Role: Design, software development.

Technology: Visual C++, Direct3D, DirectShow, OSC, Piccolo Popolo.

Description:

Interaction is storytelling, and storytelling is a need.

“protoTypo” is an interactive container of stories.

This implementation of protoTypo stems for Frontiers of Interaction 2013 and tells a story of design and designers.

The tool of interaction is a humble spray gun, to commemorate the craftsmen who actually built those prototypes, and to make the interactive storytelling experience more substantial.

Spray letter clouds to unveil stories: it’s a game!
