Air Drops is an environment for discovering the hidden capability of the mind. It’s an interactive video installation, where the audience moves the hand in the air and create beautiful paintings on a screen. Color, thickness, shape, everything happens through performing natural gestures. Interactive sounds of nature accompany painterly gestures whilst music stimulates the imagination. The author of the installation is present during the performance and interacts with the audience.When the painting is finished, the image is recorded and becomes part of an online gallery. Air Drops allows any kind of person, from children to elder, to discover his own creativity capability, even without any painting skill.
