Awaken – interactive sound installation. 2018.
Awaken explores the relationship between instincts and conscious thinking.
What is the influence of the natural impulses over the rational?
Awaken narrates its struggle to the viewer, seeking his/her attention through its actions.
The viewer is invited to touch the skin of Awaken, forcing a shift in the balance of the dialogue.
