Free Cage


I.O.T. Installation

Free cage is an alluminium lamp presented at the Thessaloniki design week 2019. Designed according to harmonic principles, it is an interactive "internet of things" installation, technologically advanced and equipped with sound and position sensors. It changes colors and light intensity according to frequencies and vibration produced by the sound of a tibetan bell.

"We, sailors and prisoners, will be increasingly caught up in this vast network of tangible and intangible entities. We will be more and more inside a prison with open cages, and we will be like those birds that no longer flee from their cage even the doors are open.
We will be at the same time both the wolf and the dog of Aesop's fable, without knowing which of the two identities we will be interpreting with our choices.
Where is freedom? Where is the prison? Where is the matter? Where is transcendence? Which song will we sing? The power or frustration? The escape or the return?"
