AirXY: From Immaterial To Rematerial is a multimedia installation combining real time animation, sensors, haze, light and sound. Large-scale screen and floor projections confront and engage visitors passing through the massive space of the Corderie dell’Arsenale. The screen is a clock and responsive real time capture of the presence of visitors while the floor projection gradually reveals a fleeting, ethereal architecture.

AirXY uses digital technologies to sculpt time, leading visitors from the flatness of a hypnotic screen-scape and towards a space of physical sensations. The installation situates itself at the intersection of architecture, media and communications where human and technical ecologies merge into a new perspective.

In this way,  AirXY introduces new spaces of meaning and presence: an architecture of in between moments-of air and the ephemeral.
