My project consists of an interactive installation in which thanks to a holographic pyramid it is possible to view a polygon in 3 dimensions. This polygon will have on its faces a portion of what it will find in front of itself and reacting to the sound produced by people will change its shape unexpectedly.
The idea of ​​this project is to put in close connection objects and people surrounding the installation, with a digital object, inconsistent and superficially "covered" with physical reality, highlighting the close relationship that now exists between the actions that we carry out every day and the way in which these actions unknowingly flow into the digital "space", modifying it and generating unexpected deformations of the latter.

Mat Toan

Mat Toan is an artist who lives and works in Rome.
With a solid technical / scientific training in the electrical field, electronic and on automation systems, he decided to specialize in Multimedia and Technological Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, becoming increasingly interested in the combination of Art and technology.
The relationship between Human Being and Technology is the basic concept of his research and around which most of his works are developed.
Issues such as the impact of technology on human life, Artificial Intelligence, Analogue Reality and Virtual Reality and the way in which these are integrated into the contemporary society are investigated through the use of different languages ranging from the most classic like photography to multimedia installations, making his works devices (often interactive) that stimulate the observer to ask more questions instead of provide him with certainties.
The choice to involve the spectator at a multisensory level, means that every work encountered leaves an emotion as well as a deep reflection on the subject addressed.
