PangeiArt creates and produces interactive installations and exhibitions, live performances, educational programs and unique music projects. We have been closely collaborating with foundations, museums, cultural centers, galleries, ensembles, composers, film directors and producers.
The Poet Tree is an example of how we conceive, research, develop and deliver projects to our clients. Commissioned by the Municipality of Oeiras in Lisbon for a public park dedicated to poetry, the Poet Tree was designed as an interactive sound installation in the shape of a tree. Its canopy is made of 60 cymbals each associated to a living poet. The wind causes the cymbas to gently hit each other creating a pleasant soothing sound.
We carried out the design, testing stability and simulation of wind loads and worked with our partners in the Netherlands, Turkey and Portugal to fabricate all of its components. We also gathered 60 poets from the Portuguese speaking countries and created a web app that allows visitors to enjoy their poetry.
Uana was commissioned by the Clay Center for the Arts and Sciences of West Virginia and is currently installed in their children’s workshop studio. We designed Uana to be a standalone multiplayer musical instrument that can be played by up to four musicians.
In this particular project we used digital fabrication technologies such as 3D modelling, laser cutting, metal and wood CNC and surface coating supplied by our long time partners in Portugal and the UK. We’ve included a multimedia manual and tutorials to easily learn how to play Uana.
