A project developed as part of Interactivos 2007, in Madrid, Spain, attempts to literally merge physical and virtual objects as an art project.

The blocks and cuboid shapes are purely physical objects, but a virtual map of them is in place as well, completely identical, draped over them just above the surface. Onto thismap a huge variety of colours are mapped bvia augmented reality. This creates wildly changing 'shadows' and contour lines that can be altered on the fly as a living artwork. The overal effect is strikingly similar to the Disney film Tron.
