HOT•BED is pleased to present Synesthesia, an interactive installation by Severino Alfonso and Loukia Tsafoulia of the Synesthetic Research and Design Lab at Thomas Jefferson University. The project is the inaugural exhibition at MICRO•GALLERY, a new experimental space within HOT•BED (723 Chestnut Street). This presentation will mark the first public preview of Synesthesia before it leaves to be exhibited at the renowned ECC Architecture Biennale in Venice, Italy (May-November 2021). Synesthesia stems from Alfonso and Tsafoulia’s extensive scholarly work at The Lab, which serves as a collaborative research and prototyping platform where interactive design and emergent health sciences meet. The immersive installation investigates the relationships and intersections where responsive environments and design meet; a manifestation of abstracted bodily data, projected back onto an analog domain. Synesthesia will be on view to the public by appointment only from February 19 – March 6, 2021.
