Emotions through body is a multimedia art exhibition based on video projection aimed to provide people a metaphor of the path through the steps of their lives, narrating the emotions they sense in the everyday life through body gestures, represented with multi-screen video projections in the different rooms..

THE BIRTH
In the first room visitors are immersed in a calm and neutral mood, representing human beings’ state before the birth: they don’t know what to expect from the exhibition.

HUMAN LIFE STAGES
In the Life Stages Rooms visitors look at the video projections. In each of the rooms there are three different groups of videos about childhood, adulthood or old age.

DEATH AND AFTERLIFE
The last room is divided by the first one through a oneway mirror: they can look at new visitors in the first room, representing the afterlife and observing silently the new human lives.

VIDEO PROJECTIONS
The clips displayed in the Life Stage rooms are represented thanks to projectors arranged behind the visitors, which project the content in three frames of different sizes and compositions for each step of the exhibition. The composition of the frame change for orientation and organization, but the main ratio are: 4:3 frame to display videos of details, 21:9 frame to display landscape videos or videos of people in group, 9:16 frame to display full figure people.

AUDIO
There will be also an audio accompainment: in each room thee will be an environmental soundtrack given by ceiling speakers, while getting close to each video projection there will be a directional speaker reproducing some single clip’s audio.

THE CONTENTS
Each video represents the difficulties and the joys that characterize each life stage period.
The three frames allow the visitors to see the different facets of existence with a particular attention for the feelings and human body, and, thanks to this mix, the visitors can perceive the complexity of emotions and get captured by these images.
