Paola Torres, masterstudent i fri konst, har vunnit Prêmio de Mídias Locativas - Ecorregião Amazônica, ett pris inom elektronisk konst, Brasilien.

Paola Torres om projektet:
" The drawing is based on Shipibo-Conibo designs. What the code does is basically redraw this pattern, interconnecting the lines as if it would be a textile. It is reactive to people moving in the space where it is installed - this code also modifies sound, which is based on Shipibo-Conibo chants by the use of "Granular Synthesis" technique, and, just as the pattern, the playback rate and the length of each small "grain" (microsample) taken for the original sound file depends on where the person is standing in the space".
