Sotasostre is a large modular origami hanging from the ceiling that changes shape thanks to motors that are pulling some wires connected to the structure and modify. These motors are activated by the interaction of the visitors themselves in space, captured by a camera / sensor image recognition. Moreover, the modules that make up the origami work as a container box of small objects that generate analog sounds with bumps that give the walls to change shape.
Conceptually, the proposal wants to talk about the different transformations that happened at Convent de Sant Agustí throughout its history, both physical and functional: From its beginnings as an Augustinian monastery, its destruction in the War of Succession, the conversion Royal Military Academy of Mathematics (where
taught many subjects related to characteristics of the project: geometry, architecture, mechanics …) the hidden Masonic lodge, and finally the current use as a civic center. A place in constant motion adapting to the needs of the environment and society, just as acts origami, activating different forms and sounds through the interaction of the occupants of the space.
Project created as part of Hightech Rupestre collective.
