mapMyVisit is activated from the visitors of A.D.A.F. An interactive jukebox which keeps memory of a certain amount of audio tracks and, as a result, dance choreographies depending on the number of lasers and photosensors with which it is programmed to communicate. The visitor has the first say when it comes to the selection of the music and dance that will follow after passing, intentionally of unintentionally, between the lasers and the photosensors. These are programmed to turn on colorful lamps that are placed on a wooden surface which plays the role of a mixing deck. Meaning, that a Dj has the final say, as he/she handles the light switches that activate the sound, and ultimately the dancer, when turned off. mapMyVisit suggests a chained relation between movement - light - sound creating an alternative remapping of the activity of the visitors inside the exhibition hall of A.D.A.F. The video is a trailer of mapMyVisit.
