Contact Zone I. PAV – Parco Arte Vivente of Turin
Directed by Vanessa Vozzo
StudiumLab University of Turin – PAV Parco Arte Vivente of Turin
The work concerns the urban area of the PAV-Parco Arte Vivente in Turin as a significant contact-zone of the city. The composition of the materials will take place through a GPS tracking system and with the development of a specific application for the localization of audiovisual content in urban spaces. A simple and effective system in which the contents can be downloaded directly to the users / visitors’ phones through a specific app.
The audiovisual content will follow a narrative and / or counter-narrative model with the aim of reconfiguring the contact-zone through an embodiment process, which makes the urban space perceive in a different way.
