And, the interactive photography installation that let the audience get envolved and be part of the work . and be more aware about the impact of social media to create a connected space where we can share our experiences by a creative way and spread a new vision about the culture which is related to that specific place.it’s an installation that needs a collaboration between two persons , one is using the map to get his itinarery and the other one is taking picture of his mouvement inside the photographed road. Creating together a stop motion video that they can share in there social media and enjoy it . The more interesting part is to be part of the project.
