Does the internet unite or separate people?
GET YOUR SEATS
AND ENJOY THIS VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE!
#microfugas is a itinerant video installation that unites people around the world, around a table to discuss a common theme to modern society: the virtual relationships.
From studies conducted in the area of social behavior of modern humans, the project #microfugas depicts how relationships between individuals are becoming increasingly virtual, ignoring the physical social contact.
The video-installation #microfugas promotes a playful digital environment, where the meeting virtual is approaching the maximum of physical reality.
People around the world, literally connected around a bar table to discuss how we are living the theme:
” Does the internet unite or separate people?
The project #microfugas aims to make global exhibitions in multidisciplinary centers of art, galleries and museums of the world proposing the confrontation between the virtual and real relationships.
For this experiment we created a symbol of social meeting point among those represented by a bar table and four chairs.
In three of these seats will be installed and connected computers by Skype with people from different parts of the world, talking on video conferencing.
Each computer has a webcam, allowing the conversation between the three is seen by all. The three exposed surfers will have the opportunity to interact with each other and a fourth person, in this case will the visitor of the exhibition.
