Exploring the graphic patterns generated by the shadows of the Herveo Tower, a projection in the exhibition area will display Processing real-time drawings generated by code. The pattern composition will change according data generated by local and remote participants. A camera on the gallery maps local visitors and QR Codes distributed on the region between Centro Cultural Universitario Rogelio Salmona – Universidad de Caldas (CCU) and the Tower send remote visitors location through the Internet. Both data combined change the resulting forms and shapes of the interactive installation. This procedure aims to approximate real and virtual, as it relates the presence of the passers to visual aspects of the animated lines, but also the materiality of the Tower, manifested by the shapes of its shadows, and the digitalities of its onscreen representation. As a result, it dialogs with the geometry of the Tower, which is a landmark of Manizales that can be seen from a distance from several areas of the city.
The work proposes the spatial projection of the Torre Herveo through the urban space with the use of 4 types of QR codes that indicate the approach or distance of the tower in relation to the exhibition space.
