The project concerns a route in a natural landscape, where during the course, material was collected through recording applications and some of the information that emerged was used for the audiovisual material: the shape of the route, numbers, words and symbols. The aim was to depict the experience as a transformation of the real into the virtual. For this reason there are no images of the area per se as it would be captured with a camera, but mainly material collected with GPS apps and notes. In the process even the body itself functions as a medium and detects the place, processes it and subsequently produces the stimuli received. The aesthetics of the work draws elements of the modern digital environment and the videogames space, given that technological developments increasingly affect everyday life; a potential reality where cyberspace defines the future.
