ALEJANDRO CASAZI

Empatheia Ballare

2009
Mixed Media Installation
Each 36 in.
Dimensions variable

The installation synchronizes the heart pulsation of the spectators. The floating spheres produce a low vibration and sound pulsation that, when hugged, activates a natural reaction in the body — a bio-mechanical reaction that synchronizes with the stronger beat.

Those who choose to hug the spheres synchronize for an instant, becoming ONE with the installation.

The artwork experience is designed to break any social, political, religious, and ethnic structures that separate the individuals from the works on display. It connects us through a bio-mechanical, empathetic highlight, which reveals our equality and connection to the other.
