Influenza (Rafael Marchetti and Raquel Rennó)

Nonsensor is a project that makes use of movement sensors to capture the distortion created by objects that intervene in the magnetic field between the sensors and the antenna. The graphic interface show points which create lines for each sensor; in fact the sensors are fixed, it’s the magnetic disturbance in the system (created by the user that manipulates metallic objects) that creates changes in the database that are represented as physical displacement. We consider that the first interface between man and machine is the physical environment which transmits information. This immersive environment cannot be reduced to the monitor, mouse, keyboard or other computer peripherals, since other elements are in action.Information in digital language does not have necessarily to do with the meaning of codified elements; in fact they are impulses, ways of energy in movement that are transformed into signals only after the definition of a reading code Therefore the code can be changed generating different results, even from the same informational database. Nonsensor is a proposal for using information as an incorporeal flow that constitutes the interface.
