MIRA Festival – Barcelona 30/10 — 07/09   2015
WIDE/SIDE exhibition (João Martinho Moura, 2015)

João Martinho Moura is a researcher and media artist whose interests are focused in digital art, intelligent interfaces, digital music and computational aesthetics and he’s developed pioneering research work in the area of human-computer interfaces applied to digital interfaces.

The version of “WIDE/SIDE” to be shown in MIRA 2015 will have a form of interactive installation which represents the body, inter-connected, whose silhouette is captured by sensors, promoting immersive experiences, using fast light beams projected in vertical bars that form a kinetic sculpture. The body is represented digitally in an abstract space and generatively changed in time. The interaction is synchronized with sound atmospheres, which react to the lines generated by the silhouettes and their movement.

Location: Fabra i Coats – Fàbrica de Criació, Barcelona, Spain

About MIRA Festival

MIRA festival is an international placeholder in the visual arts calendar bringing new creations, unexpected symbiosis, knowledge transfer and opportunities to ensure musical and visual artistic collaborations are fostered. It’s a cultural event that bases its proposal in three connected areas: exhibition, divulgation and education.

The thought provoking events, held in the city of Barcelona, combine unique spaces and architecture to spread different cultural initiatives such as concerts, installations, conferences and workshops showcasing visual and technological innovation. MIRA encourages collaboration, enables the emergence of new projects and supports relationships from collectives, associations and individuals linked with visual creation.

What differentiates MIRA from other festivals and cultural activities, is the ability to interweave the visual and music elements to transform them into a unique and immersive experience for the public.
