VAST/O

Installation by Natalie Woolf, Carolina Martins and João Carola, from 30th November to 5th December 2019.

The phonetic differences between the english word “vast” and the portuguese “vasto” lead to an exploration of the creative expression of psychological phenomena such as agoraphobia and claustrophobia and their physiological consequences such as shortness of breath and vertigo. VAST/O aims to generate sensations of paradoxical spatial experiences by combining actual and animated spaces, through static and moving images. The use of comics panels in relation with a specific architectural space and the use of animation not only in its traditional channels, but also by means of augmented reality apps for interaction between viewers and spaces, will provide narrative layers that enhance the engagement of the experience.
