Dive is not only an art installation's name, it's a call: to participate, to be part of the installation, to go in & discover the inner magic.
Every audience interaction will leave a track that will fade away in unpredictable ways, like the little, tiny waves and water flows we generate when we dive into the sea.
Behind the projection surface, consisting in a semi-transparent canvas, there's a
loudspeaker matrix. Each one emitting a different tone, going higher and lower in pitch
sensing the light intensity received.
Projected images will be real time generated through controlled visual feedback: an effect very similar to the one you get by placing two mirrors in front of each other (in this case, done and controlled via digital machines).
This will result in unpredictable shapes and movements, due to the interaction between the camera's digital noise and the audience movements in the sensorized area.
It's an autonomous system; we can interact with any movement in-between the projector and the 'sculpture' generating an audible and visible sign, but it will be going to fade, to dissolve: chaos will remain, generating colors, shapes and sounds on its own.

. Right now is a prototype, built with refurbished electronics.
It its ideal setup the screen, and so the loudspeaker matrix, should be as big as possible.
