#3 The landscape of encounters in a dynamic installation

The Acquario Civico hosts this year the exhibition by architects Alice Buroni and Gloria Lisi together with Alex Buroni.

“Once again during the Design Week, Stark experiments with a dynamic and participatory installation portraying the landscape of the encounter between living beings. Our hands guide the effects in the surrounding space, but at the same time gestures of other entities can intervene and change in turn what surrounds us. The work thus envelops us like a canvas in which the relationships between effects are dynamically woven, inviting us to rely on a holistic and perceptive understanding of the experience of co-defining space. The installation offers a reflection on how our actions, however conscious, are necessarily intertwined with those from other lives”

Entrance to the event is free of charge. Acquario Civico is in V.le Gadio, 2 and easily accessible with the red line of the underground services (Cairoli stop)

#4 Vivarium: The Educational Power of Bio-based Materials
