Synesthesia at the Municipal Theatre of Piraeus, Athens

The Municipal Theatre of Piraeus, Athens hosts the interactive installation Synesthesia, exhibited for the first time in Greece, following its presentation at the European Cultural Center as part of the 17th Architecture Biennial in Venice 2021.

Synesthesia is an atmospheric immersive space that attracts the viewer to approach and

engage in a sensorial conversation. It aligns with a historical inquiry on the

human-machine–environment recursive relationships providing a rational and emotional sense of what it means to live among machines that converse and raises awareness on the design potential behind responsive environments. At the same time, it offers possibilities for critiquing space interactivity and offers opportunities for both historical reflection and prospective thinking.

Synesthesia is a project by Severino Alfonso and Loukia Tsafoulia, within the context of their research for the Synesthetic Research and Design Lab, Thomas Jefferson University, College of Architecture and Built Environment — multidisciplinary research that provokes a discourse between art, technology, digital culture, and health studies.
