Yesterday’s Future

Yesterday’s Future is a sculptural piece commissioned by the Gallery at the Embassy of Brazil that combines raw elements of technology and architecture .

This project was developed in collaboration with the architectural studio Naja & DeOstos commissioned for the exhibition Swarming Futures of Architecture at the Embassy of Brazil, as part of the International Architecture Showcase of London Festival of Architecture 2010. The piece is a tree-like monolithic structure with 8 arm stands holding interactive LCD monitors. The monitors are hand made and fitted with sensors and motors able to detect and react to human presence. Users inside the space are confronted by the massive structure interacting with the screens that demonstrate awareness to its surroundings with the choreography of their antennas. Swarming Futures was shortlisted as one of the top 3 exhibitions in the International Architecture Showcase.
