Project Description


Lumiq Theatre, Turin, 2012

Wonderful is an interactive video installation portraying five giant human beings, isolated from each other and each on their own altar.

They are splendid, very elegant and very high-bourgeois. They are human figures of monumental dimensions who dance alone to underline that, despite their physical appearance and psychological constraints, the human being does not have a finite form, but lives in the experience of himself and his emotional heritage.

These are variations on the theme of the 8 basic emotions to play with: fear, anger, joy, sadness, surprise, disgust, courage, anxiety, jealousy and loneliness. The observer is concretely invited to participate in the game by acting on a touch screen placed in the center of the installation through which he interacts with the giants, creating a form of bond with them.
