With the support of:


We were invited by the Spanish Embassy in Abu Dhabi to create a work in the UAE within the program of artists in residence.

Operating like a videogame, Dynacity is an interactive installation that proposes the construction of a city with explicit reference to a plausible but unreal city of the United Arab Emirates.

The movement of the spectator is the engine that generates buildings and the city. Move! jump! dance! don’t stop!
In the screen, you will discover a city that travels through time (from past to future) in accordance with your rhythm, to induce reflections about architecture, identity, memory and the idea of spectacle.
