Medium Standard

Daniel Samperio / Mario Costa

Installation created and developed during the first year of the Master Program in Technology and Digital Art at the University of Minho in Guimarães, Portugal.

Medium Standard is an interactive installation where three tangible objects -Coins, Dry Leaves and a Newton’s Cradle- control the multi-media environment in real-time.

The objects represent vital and common elements of our daily lives, having a symbolism that will be represented in a collaborative performance where the combination of nature, time and money will allow the users to immerse and relate to it. As we are part of a social system, this installation represents our role in modern society, defining how our actions affect our own particular system.

The aim of Medium Standard is to generate an immersive collaborative space where users will participate and ask themselves about the relation between the objects, their reaction and how it is affecting the system.
