’sculptrice’ is a spatial installation-instrument into which we enter to interact with. Three spaces are overlapping like vortexes: a physical, a digital and a sensorial; interwoven layers that should not be seen as distinct but as nuances of the same underlying hybrid space.
’sculptrice’, maybe for its female attributes, is a passive creative force that needs to be activated; but like the sculpture that grows into itself during the process of carving, this one develops through the flowing, ebbing and overlapping of gestures and movement.
’sculptrice’ is activated through four possible interactions, closely localized to four input devices, or islands, that are theremins or conducting antennas. The theremin is a free-form gestural instrument that can be played intuitively, as it picks up the surrounding electromagnetic field, which can, in turn, be used to explicit certain parameters in the experiential realm.
