Capoeira Performing Device, 2014

Interaction Design

Architectural reinterpretation of Brazilian martial art ‘Capoeira’.

This was the first project of my second year at Bartlett school of architecture.

Inspired by the movement of the capoeira and the characteristic of it being rhythmical yet energetic continuously changing its shape and re-forming the circles.
The device require two people’s engagement to be fully activated. The device rotates until it finds the active audiences. Audiences by grabbing the LDR at the end of the brass rod can activates the device.
