E-ansã is included in the exhibition-part of the festival. E-ansã is a garment that responds to the presence of frequency signals from mobile phones. The goal of the artwork is to transform the invisible occurrence of electromagnetic radiation into the visible phenomenon of wind, which we can perceive with our senses. At the exhibition opening the garment will be worn by a hostess who will invite the visitors to call her on her mobile number. E-ansã is not a real performance, but more of a project presentation.
