Ephemeral dictionary

Ephemeral Dictionary is an interactive installation that allows the creation of the emotional dictionary of a community.

It was commissioned by Teatro Tascabile Bergamo and HG80 impresa sociale as part of the Il Mantello di Arlecchino project supported by the Cariplo Foundation and the Municipality of Bergamo, as part of the participatory art project conceived by the textile artist Lisa Martignoni.

It uses a vintage input system already described in this previous post.

The installation, deliberately portable, also makes use of a pepper-ghost based viewer, which allows you to holograph the floating input above the dictionary.

The installation was used during the months of March and April 2022 in various schools and parks in the Valtesse district of Bergamo, where the participatory art project had dropped.
