Vib Eye

Multisensorial interactive installation

The Eye of the Traveller

A multisensorial and interactive installation: an eye flashing visions of travels through Earth and sky, racial and cultural differences, a visual ancestral memory transforming itself through human interaction.

A sphere positioned at the center of a room is the origin of several ropes; when touched, the ropes cast a picture of an eye’s iris on the ceiling and, at the same time, they release a sound and a fragrance.

This multisensorial installation allows countless variations of colours, sounds and fragrances according to the point in which the rope is touched. All senses are connected to frequency combinations, exchages of vibrations and the spectator himself becomes part of the artwork by touching the ropes.

Set in the middle of the Universe, above the head, the eye with its endless iris’ shades represents the principle of knowledge, the origin of sensations, the arrival point for the outward light, the starting point for the inner light, where body and soul are mixed together.

The progressive development of man is vitally dependent on invention. It is the most important product of his creative brain. It’s ultimate purpose is the complete mastrey of mind over the material world, the harnessing of the forces of nature to human needs.

Potentia (Dynamis in greek) expresses the potential, the ability, the chance of an unrealized action. Aristotelian precepts also refer to Dynamis which means possibility. Potential is not only a mental concept, but it is the sense of being.

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.

Albert Einstein, Letter to his son Eduard, 1930

There is something in the brain which doesn’t distinguish the difference between us and others. Also the acknowledgement of emotions seems to lie on an ensenmble of neural circuits which, as different as they may seem, share that “mirror” characteristic already witnessed in the case of actions.

It is not enough to just look; one must look with eyes that want to see and that believe what they see.
