Augmented Sculpture v. 1.2

'Pablo Valbuena Pablo Valbuena

This project is focused on the temporary quality of space, investigating space-time not only as a three-dimensional environment, but also as space in transformation. For this purpose two layers are produced that explore different aspects of the space-time reality.

On the one hand the physical layer, which controls the real space and shapes the volumetric base that serves as support for the next level. The second level is a virtual projected layer that allows controlling the transformation and sequentiality of space-time. The blending of both levels gives the impression of physical geometry suitable for being transformed.

The overlapping produces an Euclidean three-dimensional space augmented by a transformable layer that I can control, resulting in the capacity through the installation of altering multiple dimensions of space-time.

These ideas come to life in an abstract and geometric envelope, enhanced with synaesthetic audio elements and establishing a dialogue with the observer.


The first stage of this project was developed during the Interactivos? 2007 workshop at MediaLabMadrid.
