The etymon of the word 'voyage' comes from Latin viāticum, which means 'provision for travelling'; the inspiration of this artwork is to allow people to travel and sail with absolute freedom to all the places we care to imagine. Paper boats bring us in voyages through childhood memories, wishes and imaginings. Paper boats’ on the water invite everyone to make a transition from reality to imagination, reliving childhood memories and embracing our freedom. Creating an unexpected and unusual addition to the landscape, Voyage inspires the viewers to think creatively about the spaces around them; the dynamic coloured light scenarios of the artwork invite the viewer to make a smooth transition between reality and daydream.

This work aims at investigating the relationship between creation and fruition of art, in works that show intelligent responsiveness to viewer input. Which is your brass voice? is an interactive installation in which the audience members are partners in constructing meanings and producing contents. Using artificial intelligence techniques, the artwork analyses the individual nuances of people’s voices and creates a new music composition in real time on the base of its vast musical knowledge.
Users’ voice is transformed into sound and coloured lights for exploring rich aesthetic interactions.

Aether & Hemera have been shortlisted for the “Tunnel Vision” project in Derby and they designed the 'Magic Green Garden' for the main Tunnel.
Inspire by the beautiful landscape around this manmade infrastructure, the idea is to cover with grass the tunnel’s surfaces appearing to be seamless extensions of the surrounding green areas and bringing the natural environment in the underpass. Thanks to the addition of glimmering light embedded in the grass this tunnel will be transformed into an enchanted green passage.
we are pleased to take the occasion os such a great day to unveil the follow-up of our Mood Chair project.
