Paolo Salvagione


Paolo Salvagione uses his engineering background to create complex sensory experiences for his viewers: vertigo and emotional transport by being suspended from a second floor window or overwhelming memory by inhaling deeply from concentrated essential aromas. For NEAT he has created a machine using electronics and 3D printing to create eerily alive line drawings in space. Ropes attached to the gizmo flail in space, ecstatically free yet also restrained by one foot, often forming symmetrical patterns like water ballet.
