An interactive multimedia show that exhibits the works created by teams of students from the Sound Design, Interaction Design and Video Design programmes of the Visual Arts school, coordinated by Davide Sgalippa, Painé Cuadrelli, Paolo Solcia and Dario Gavezotti. What are borders? How do we conduct ourselves when faced with cultural frontiers, identity and gender? The concept of the exhibit explores the concept of borders and attempts to stimulate the emotional participation of spectators by involving them in an empathic relationship through the audio-visual media. The show is presented as a technological organism in which the installations of each team of students are pulsating parts that interact with the visitor.
The artworks are:
BEYOND THE WALL by Isabella Montan, Carlotta Marabelli, Beatrice Malerba and Ester Molteni. The installation explores the concept of the border as a mental limitation that prevents the free expression of the imagination. As a physical barrier, a wall, the border is placed in front of the viewer symbolizing the vastness of intellectual barriers that affect, in a negative way, human relationships.
FLIPOVER by Elena Beltrami, Alice Casalini, Paolo Savoldelli and Federica Valiante. An interactive installation that is inspired by the pinball game. Through video projections on a wooden surface, flipover reproduces the mechanism of the game, turning it into an opportunity for reflection for the viewer; the levels are the prejudices, superstitions, stereotypes that fill the human mind by creating barriers in social coexistence.
BEYOND THE GENDER by Gloria Cavalleri, Giacomo Ferrari, Giacomo Guglielmo Gorla and Jacopo Marzi. The installation reflects on the concept of gender and social interaction and it is an invitation to confront the social perception of the others. Through a sound system and video projections, the work will tell stories and experiences of exclusion.
DESPINA by Alice Atzori, Gabriele Casiraghi, Camilla Levi, Federica Rebaudengo, Tommaso Bullo. The work is inspired by the title of the city described by Italo Calvino in “Le città invisibili” as "border city between two deserts", seen differently by the sailor and the camel. Despina is a museum of personal items that brings the stories of the migrants. The stories are drawn from the evidence collected on the site Stories Migrants (www.storiemigranti.org) and Green Report (www.greenreport.it).
