RTiVISS @ Future Places = treeellucinations

RTiVISS | Treeellucinations interactive installation, Future Places exhibition at Maus Hábitos [2009/10/07~19] Exhibition site


Research outputs

RTiVISS outputs will be a trade-off between aesthetic pleasure from contemplative observation and interactive experiments of forests real-time videos. RTiVISS will also explore a tense feeling of control over danger and functional monitoring for forest protection in a surveillance system. Main outcomes include:

. Online, a multiplatform prototype optimized for access with computers and mobile phones. It includes real-time forests videos, artistic explorations, interfaces for users input, forum, statistics database, a video archive open for free use, and a repository of the documents and software produced within the project

. Interactive installations for public exhibition and participation

. Users feedback and evaluation

. Publications and digital arts exhibitions.

By promoting a more sustainable world through digital media arts and experimental design, this project blurs the distinction between art and society, local and global, contributing to broader aesthetic and political implications of new technology-engaged art forms, tools and media.


Activist RTiVISS

RTiVISS proposes innovative ways of conceiving both digital media arts and cutting edge environmentally sustainable practices through critical research and experimental approaches. Multiplatform devices will provide access to real-time networked video for users to "adopt" selected forests. The interactive system feeds a broad community sharing "the emotion of real-time" and the challenge of uncertainty, remotely monitoring natural environments for forests protection and aesthetic exploration.

An activist facet sparks due to the potential of contributing to forests preservation and, ultimately, to a more sustainable world.
