Spatial Animacy https://mediaambitiontokyo.jp/art/spatialanimacy/
Spatial Animacy is an interactive kinetic installation, exploring kinesthetic empathy and perceived animacy in architectural space.
In a High-Tech x Slow-Craft philosophy, a hand-folded origami surface is animated by a network of actuators using real-time spatial and physiological sensing data of the audience. This artificial micro-landscape resonates our inner states in material space through a kinetic vocabulary of organic, life-like motion, Reflecting concepts of Augmented Materiality and Animism, human and space are fused in a kinesthetic, meditative spatial experience.
