The Kiss

Single-channel video, sound, 1m 11s

A contact between two bodies. An intense sharing of information. A chemical cocktail in the brain.

The Kiss is an audiovisual work that explores a simple gesture acted out between two lovers.
An intense coming together of two bodies in the digital space.
The work was created using motion capture, particle systems and real time randomization techniques.

Performed by Antonella Mignone, Cristiano Panepuccia
Music: Cristiano Panepuccia
