Tryphons in the cave

In 2015 Artists and designers of the Canadian laboratory NXI GESTATIO were in La Verna for six days to conduct experiments with a TRYPHON: an automatic illuminated flying cube. Where art and science met, the seemingly impossible lighter-than-air architecture of the TRYPHONS became reality.  Using cutting-edge robotics technologies, equipped with video cameras, the object floated through La Verna's vast interior space, retransmitting images in real-time. An attemp was made to explore the sofar completely unaccessible -and therefore unexplored- cavities in the roof of the cave.
