PETRICHOR at ADAF 2017


Petrichor, an interactive installation by M Wingren, a young interaction designer working at Fabrica, has been selected out of 1830 submissions from 67 countries, to participate at ADAF (Athens Digital Arts Festival) 2017 #PostFuture taking place in Athens from 17 to 21 May.

Petrichor is named for the scent after it rains. The piece is interested in the traces people leave. It aims to occupy a space between the physical/ephemeral, the digital/elemental, and the conscious/unconscious.
Water vapour is used as a projection surface. The impetus to work with an ephemeral screen comes from a series of dreams where different dimensions and spirit realms were separated through non-corporeal perceptual fields. Petrichor distills the feeling of these esoteric inspirations using the relatable language of human forms, making the visitor integral to the piece.
In its final form Petrichor is a simple, hypnotic visual statement, more of a question than an answer, and open to different levels of interaction/interpretation.
