A “Little Sun” in the art world: an interview to Olafur Eliasson
by Silvia Bertolotti

It is true that two of the main elements of Eliasson’s arts have always

spaces and rising of social awareness) and the dialogue with the natural
environment. The artistic act, in an exemplary project as Little Sun, can
become a call for action and social/environmental engagement, as the artist

engage in global initiatives and local contexts. Our actions have

Displace 2.0: Mediation of Sensations. A conversation with Chris Salter
by Silvia Bertolotti

Silvia Bertolotti has interviewed the media artist Chris Salter. They spoke
about his last project "Displace 2.0", which is part of his research on the
creation of augmented performative environments where sensor based tools
and technologies challenge the sensorial experience on different levels
(audio, visual, tactile, olfactive, etc). Developed with TeZ Maurizio
Martinucci and the anthropology professor David Howes, and presented at
TodaysArt festival 2012, it's a seminal experience for all lovers of close
relationships between Art, Perception & Science
