The Airborne series is a set of interactive installations designed to animate literary, scientific and philosophical texts on the subjects of entropy, complexity, chance and non-linear dynamics. As a viewer stands in front of the work a sensor creates a “heat map” of his or her body and evaporates letters of the text that scroll on screen and which become “airborne”, generating turbulent movements. As the participant moves away the letters cool down and precipitate. The interaction fills the screen slowly, showing tens of thousands of letters, at which point the text fades out, and begins to scroll again from the beginning. Among the texts animated are “New Experiments with the Vacuum" by Blaise Pascal, “Thermodynamics of Irreversible Processes” by Ilya Prigogine, “Ars Magna” by Ramon Llull and “The Labyrinth of Fortune” by Juan de Mena.
