Laptop and electronic circuits: Ivan Franco


We like to create symbols and map everything we see. In the era of computing and genetic engineering, we now map more information than ever before: not only in science, but also our social relations or the behaviour of the financial markets. Contact is an installation/performance that invites the public to build connections that lead to the reconfiguration of interactive audio-visuals. Ivan Franco is a prominent figure in the world of interactive technologies, digital art and innovation, whose works include electronic music, interactive installations and contemporary performance.
