Square Milano is a participatory installation that manipulates its surroundings. The result of a research project developed at IRCAM - Centre Pompidou in Paris, the work guides the audience through an ambiguous soundscape which plays with the simultaneous perception of real and fictitious inputs. The project employs a holophonic system of binaural recordings, which reproduce a realistic three-dimensional acoustic space, alongside domestic technologies such as tablets and smart phones, whose functions are distorted and expanded. This installation by Lorenzo Bianchi Hoesch takes the spectators on a journey of discovery of urban space: the sounds bring back memories of places, which in turn merge with the present. Reality and imagination become two indistinguishable dimensions, creating a paradoxically cinematographic experience.
