Caracolomobile na exposição Emoção Art.ficial 5, Instituto CulturalItaú
Caracolomobile is an artwork that goes further into the concept of artificial organisms that have flexible and organic structures. It has a affective interface to control some of the processes happening inside it. The affective interface will allow the organism to answer expressively to the participants through sounds while the organism unfolds. The sounds are answers to the interactors´ inner emotional states. These states result in biometric signals, which will be captured through a skin resistant galvanometer, taken to a microchip for filtering and controlling the interface. The Caracolomobile structure is composed by a set of varied pyramids that unfold forming a logarithmic curve. The pyramids are articulated by rubber muscles that folds and unfolds following the movement of a inflated tube that dilates and contracts. It will be covered with a material responsive to black light allowing it to light up. Although being very ordinary, these procedures create a very poetic solution.
