YMYI is an interactive installation, where one is supposed to build up a body language dialogue with an artificial system so as to effectively achieve a synchronized performance between the real user ?s body and the virtual object itself. The artifact aims at exploring a spatial sphere, where the user/performer is invited to develop his own creative inspiration based on his own body gestures and movements.

MaLaKuLa is portrayed along a beach walk. It appeals to the contact with objects lost and found along the way, objects with a life and a history. It consists on a project seeking the intervention with the casual walker and the interaction with other close objects. It invites users to participate on a voyage through worlds created through soundscape narratives. Those narratives are created to highlight and emphasize the qualities of the objects themselves.
