In collaboration with Jessica Angel, Nelson Ramon will build three-dimensional elements and incorporate technological components in order to increase the immersive experience of the installation As Above, So Below. Sensors will trigger audio and visual narratives that will shift the audience’s perception as well as invite them to modify, alter and interact with the space.
