injunction is an arch that was installed in the center of the exhibition space and that forms a kind of temporal portal: the visitor, when passing through this arch, sees his image projected on the screen, through a technique called slit scan. The artist intends to work the limit between the present and the past, creating a visual metaphor, making the visitor perceive the dilation of time and his own reflection.

Another outstanding work is Augmented Shadow: Inside, by South Korean Joon Y Moon. This is an unprecedented work in Brazil: an augmented reality experience that allows interaction with characters in virtual shadows of real three-dimensional objects, such as doors, windows and chairs.

“We are resuming [o File] after almost three years of pandemic. This edition has two fronts: an adaptation of what we had thought pre-pandemic, when [o evento] did not occur. And what we managed to combine with what we think of what is happening now. Initially, we had worked on an event all linked to artificial intelligence. But Supercreativity works precisely on the question of reflecting on how it exists independently of artificial intelligence itself. Artificial intelligence is just a tool, which some works here make use of,” said Paula Perissinotto, co-founder and organizer of File.

“Creativity is present not only in several works here, not only in the arts, but also in various areas and aspects of our society. And that’s what we try to bring as a reflection here,” she added, in an interview with Brazil Agency. “Visitors will find here many ways of perceiving the use of technology as a tool for creation, not just consumption”, he said.

#L1

Among the highlights of the exhibition is the installation #L1, by Fernando Velásquez, a work with the participation of programmer Gustavo Milward. In an interview with Brazil Agency, he said that the work, which consists of 16 neon bars, is not interactive. However, it is unique: each visitor who passes through it will have a different experience. These neon bars turn on or off, or change the intensity of the light, according to algorithms. “It is not an interactive work. It doesn’t have sensors that capture movement, for example. But she has a logic. It is a work that will never be repeated: it will always generate variables. A person who enters here will see one thing. Another one will have another experience”, said Milward.

File also features a huge wall with 140 QRCodes. With each click, a new experience will be given to the public. “There are 140 works that are arranged in QRCode which they can see from their own cell phone, with their own headset. They are works of video art, digital art and sound art”, said the organizer of the event.
