Exploring the graphic patterns generated by the shadows of the Herveo Tower, a projection on a screen positioned amidst two of its columns will display Processing real-time drawings generated by code. The pattern of lines, as well as their velocity, will change according to the behaviour of people walking on its surroundings (as mapped from a computer-vision device positioned nearby). The installation aims to approximate real and virtual, as it relates the presence of the passers to visual aspects of the animated lines, but also the materiality of the Tower, manifested by the shapes of its shadows, and the digitalities of its onscreen representation. As a result, it alters the geography of the space, which is a landmark of Manizales that can be seen from a distance from several areas of the city. By acting on such an iconic public place, the project aims to create a visual interference that refers to the dynamics implicit in the building of collective dynamics.
