Geotechnological Sanctuary of Senses represents a digitally-created space which embodies my research process, connecting nature with technology and translating them into rocks and screens. The curved screen is used throughout this installation as a method of illustrating an evolution of the modern visual display. It transcend its conventional rectangular size and becomes a device which morphs around the audience, adapting according to the subject’s field of vision. The screen portrays natural landscapes and textures, featuring the effect of a magnifying mirror because every screen becomes a mirror when turned off. The rocks I chose to include are polished, with sharp edges, as the computer is not able to produce organic shapes. The artificial rocks are passing through the curved screen, challenging gravity, their level of autonomy and the limitations of technology. The object placed at the centre of this installation represents a perfume dispenser: each time it is being touch, a new scent from around the world is generated. The screen reacts accordingly, changing the landscape and textures it displays. This level of interactivity between the user and the installation is based on the display which reacts to new data just like the human brain reacts to new smells. The similar reactions may be fascinating at first but later they may rise some questions regarding what is beyond data and what it means to be human.
