Since 2003, D3’s Edson Pavoni and João Souza have explored their passion for interactive design, using cutting edge technology with humanistic purposes; combining and balancing science and poetry.
A Place to departure is an interactive installation allowing people to interact remotely with each other by touch, despite their distance.
Apparently made only of glass and wood, it consents the opportunity to feel the other through a subtle vibration in the glass; the answer of the meeting, acknowledging presence once the two hands touch the same point of the glass in different locations.
Acknowledging distinct forms and established archetypes of a window, this object, which frames the world, is a launch area for dreams and possibilities.
Stretching the concept of digital interaction, ‘A Place to Departure’ encompasses technology, in a silent way. Developed as an answer on how to express intimacy, it allows people in alternate places to feel each other, interacting with a - transparent to the eyes - haptic feedback system. As you look through the window you can see it’s crystal clear but as you touch it, a digital mark of your touch is instantly transported to a second window, allowing you to reach the other side of the world and gently feel it, beyond the distance.
