Nomadi is an interactive multimedia installation conceived by Ali Zaidi from motiroti, that explores the origins of three seeds: rice, wheat and coffee. The spectator is taken on a journey throughout time and space discovering the uses of these three grains in different cultures present in the territory of Turin. The audience learns about how these seeds are absorbed by our diversified culture, their traditional use and the way they continue to characterise our civilisation.
Nomadi is made out of audio-visual contents coordinated by a digital system that uses Isadora and Arduino to actively engage with the audience.
The spectator can place one of the containers with the seeds on a pillar; depending on the pillar and choice of seed a different content will be shown.
