Cinética is a captivating installation that brings to life the essence of human mobility within the city of Nantes.

This dynamic exhibit allows viewers to visualize the city's movement and activity by utilizing data gathered and analyzed from smartphone users' movements.

As spectators immerse themselves in the installation, they can not only observe the urban activity but also gain insight into their own movements throughout the city, comparing their experiences with those of fellow users.

Urban mobility is elegantly represented by LED bars that rotate in response to people's activities, illustrating various aspects of movement in the city, such as flows, directions, geolocation, and diverse states of mobility.

Cinética stands at the intersection of design, art, and technology, offering a profound perspective and tangible understanding of our existence as "mobile beings" within an ultra-connected society.
Through this innovative exhibit, Cinética skillfully renders the invisible visible, capturing the essence of our ever-evolving world.
