The installation makes the im-mediate/d interaction in social situations felt by media—by sound-gestures mediating the hedonic value of bodily interactions and in this way creating common emotional environments.

People who come into contact interact primarily by bodily behavior, following natural and cultural implicit knowledge. This interaction is a multimodal process controlled by tension as media leading to a homeostatic state of pleasure—there is a border to a person’s space where intimacy starts; crossing the borders of hedonic bodies is generating common environments.

As music is to media-arts, the installation is an experimental setting bridging art and science. In order to acquire knowledge it enables recipients to experience the creative power of mediatization, of Feeling the Ex-Tension of the auditory body—just as bio-acoustics acquire the knowledge-intensifying sonic and sonifying behavioral interaction of animals to achieve communis. The sound of mating behavior is the most sensual to every body leading to the rebirth of bodies in common environments, of pleasure evolving physical, social and virtual lives.
