“Electric Feel”
Sofia Barinova-Osbanova and Kami Usu

Interactive Video Installation with Generative Graphics
Water played a crucial role in evolution, giving rise to the first life. The interactive installation Electric Feel immerses viewers in the world of low-electricity fish, which perceive their environment through electric fields. These fish, living in fresh, turbid water, use their skin to emit and sense electric fields, essentially turning their bodies into electric "eyes".

In the installation, visitors find themselves in a simulated aquatic environment, experiencing the electrosensitivity our distant ancestors once had. A tracking system detects presence, triggering changes in the aquatic space's image, expanding the usual worldview and communication possibilities.
