Square Milano

Interactive installation
Triennale Museum | Milano

Square is an interactive installation created by Lorenzo Bianchi Hoesch . This version was conceived for Milano, for the festival FOG, inside the Triennale Museum, as an augmented tour of the XXII international exposition named : Broken Nature. The sound walk leads the visitor across the place, following the steps of a women who tells her story in a succession of sound scenes associated to particular spots of the environment. The installation explores the impact of realistic and congruent augmented soundscapes upon spectators immersion, and how it can be used to blend fiction and reality. Square’s soundscapes change the way we interpret reality, giving you a kind of cinematographic experience. Like an invisible presence, it “square stays there, waiting for people who wants to experience this contemplative and innovative way to watch the world.
Square Milano was conceived for Milano, for FOG Festival, as an augmented tour of the XXII Triennale di Milano titled Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival curated by Paola Antonelli.
