The project consists of an interactive space, based on the concept of biofeedback. Habitat is a closed structure, 4 meters in diameter, supported by pillars, designed to receive a person in standing position.The piece works under the principle of transduction, which implies the transformation of one type of energy into another; and the architectonic principle of tensegrity, defined as a structural property based on the use of isolated components that are held together in a tense and balanced network by its own means. Habitat is supported through bars and elastics, which enable it to have soft and organic movements. Each participant uses a sensor that measures brainwaves and transforms the information into digital data, which in place is transduced into movement and sound.
