Rafael Lozano-Hemmer: Relational Architecture

Mexico, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer's homeland, made its debut at the 52nd edition of the Venice Biennale with the artist's work exhibition. Rafael Lozano-Hemmer is well-known for his big installations used by the most various media and for his custom-made interfaces. In other words this artist loves the active interaction of the public. Robot installations, computers, video projections, sensors, lights (and shadows) and sounds, these are the means used for the creation of works.
