“Our ability to sense and understand a changing environment is central in the process of well judged actions and constitutes the basis for our everyday life. Through each perceptual aperture we decode environmental changes and as a collective mass, subjects mobilize into groups to push with greater force where needed. In the everyday life we find multiple dependencies to environment, nature, transport systems, internet connections, mobile phones, food distribution, family and friends - as this list grow we tend to forget the very basis for society - your neighbor.“
Perceptual Ecologies study how a mediated environment can have the capacity to mobilize groups beyond the border of friendship and encourage visitors to act within responsive soundscapes. Each “agent” is a sensible instrument, triggered by fast motion in its aura. When disturbed the agent sends messages to its neighbors, a very simple communication which cause global behaviors to occur in the system. When no motion is detected the soundscape perform a transition into a slow growing system. This organization leaves very fragile dependencies between the sound agents in the system and the occupants entering its domain. Visitors have to synchronize their behavior and as a collective they have to agree to stand still. Synchronized actions among the occupancies will cause the system to stabilize into temporal auditive and visual feedback patterns, and as such the environment exhibit living relations and dependencies between visitors and environments. At the end of the day we can study how these social response strategies established distributions and new relations between visitors and study their interactions with the environment. Through the living relations between human-human, human-object and among objects themselves the occupants will experience a variety of sensoric stimulus and through a collective negotiation find his/her role in the system and inhabit the exhibition space as a occupant in a complex system.
