"The Naïf garden" OUT NOW!

Dear friends & colleagues,

Hope this finds you well.
I'm glad to share with you my project "The Naïf garden" (from the series 'digital art in public space' http://www.chiarapassa.it). Interactive video mapping screening created especially for gardens and forests 2012; realized demo 2013 at: http://www.chiarapassa.it/thegardennaif.html

I built this enchanted garden basing myself on video-mapping technique, using Quartz Composer programming language, as well as, After Effects and MadMapper software.
Since an art festival takes place mainly in the dark, I thought about turning a part of the garden in a sort of virtual and interactive nocturne happening as a 'Live Painting', where the viewer is totally protagonist and associated with the creative process of the artwork itself, that is in constant transformation. In fact, through the audience’s voices it is possible redesign a new atmosphere, that comes alive through various digital patterns based on the "particle system" swarming in the real garden, they show cells, viruses, multi-cellular organisms, and various molecular forms.In the “Naïf Garden”, the interactivity carries the people through an emotional and learning journey where their subjectivity is put in question by the choices they constantly make throughout the artwork’s layers.
The “Naïf Garden” is part of the project “Live Architecture”, a series of site-specific interactive video installations and video mapping projects, I thought them up and created them in order to reshape architecture in public places, as well as interior environments and natural landscapes into something vibrant and lively. A dynamic place is always displayed within the multimedia installations - that's why I called it "Live" – since it moves independently, beyond its functionality.

Best regards, Chiara
