The Reservoir

In February 2019 we developed “The Reservoir”: an interactive installation of sonification for the exhibition “How to Secure a Country” by the Italian-Swiss artist Salvatore Vitale set up at the Fotostiftung Schweiz of Winterthur (Zurich). Using a special carpet equipped with position sensors, the audience interacts with the opera by modulating the sound from the audio system. Through the sound glitches appearing based on the users’ location inside the room, the artist wanted to raise awareness about the risks of sharing personal data on the web.
