Diverse personalities, exchange ideas and involve in the reconstruction of the common experience as a communal creative activity. The aim is to extend the communication test with a series of artworks that refer to different societies and cultures. The project includes the exhibition of interactive artworks and workshops.
“thisismylastresort” it’s a 5.50×3.50 meter, interactive magnetic installation and it is part of the above project.
The artwork refers to the minimum moment of transition to a new state w. The artist’s original version lasts also for a very short time as the transition is direct with the public’s intervention.
The installation is the meeting point for cultural communication. The variable workflow creates a conceptual sequence of events that are recorded for artistic and educational purposes.

During the exhibition, several thousands of visitors interact freely with the installation, exchange ideas and flowingly associate,
in an amusing mental wandering. The only supervisor in the processing dialogue was the forms of the original composition which function as incomplete
symbols with ambiguous meanings.
Additionally, workshops took place.
