Aula is an interactive installation based on the importance of perception, cognition and contemplation of space. Commissioned by the Faculty of Architecture, it was realized within the aula (entrance hall) of the technical faculties building in Belgrade during the entrance exam in June 2006.
The ambient sound in the aula is slightly amplified and broadcast through speakers distributed in the surrounding corridors. Ambient sound events in the aula, such as volume or pitch change, control the real-time editing dynamics of the morphing video sequences which were generated from a series of photos of the aula. The video is projected on a large scale screen placed above the aula.
