The Kiss – Apotropia (IT)
A contact between two bodies. An intense sharing of information. A chemical cocktail in the brain. The Kiss is an audiovisual work that explores a simple gesture acted out between two lovers. The bodies are depicted as dispersed particles that come together to form two people kissing. The work was created using motion capture, particle systems and real time randomization techniques.
Apotropia is a Rome-based artist duo formed by AntonellaMignone and Cristiano Panepuccia. Their work explores the intersections of dance, performing arts and live audiovisual production. Apotropia’s works have been exhibited internationally at Japan Media Arts Festival, WRO Media Art Biennale, Ars Electronica, BLOOOM Award, FutureFest ArtPrize, Festival Internacional de la Imagen, among others.
