Filtered Transparencies – Filipa Valente 2014
Filipa used interactive video projects transposed onto transparent fabrics that were could be interacted with by the audience to create holographic images and animations. It was showcased at the PASEO festival in Taos. I really appreciate the creativity that went into this artwork. I also really like how she made it an interactive experience for the audience in order to create a more personal feeling for them.
