A star-shaped interactive installation on the Mirante’s helipad, the Sensitive Star reacts to the stimuli of moving people through a group of sensors, and responds with changing light and sound. As a larger-than-life musical instrument, it is set to input visitors’ body movements, mixing them with a soundscape, a collection of the building’s surroundings, such as street fairs, traffic, city market and the Monastery of São Bento.

"Sensitive Star" is an interactive installation that comes together with a set design at the highest rooftop in Brazil, at São Paulo historical downtown - which was abandoned for almost 3 decades. The installation invited the audience to have a new perspective of the city, observing its daily transformation and its chaos, but also enraptured by the magnificence and vastness of São Paulo. The furniture collection was published in Open Source Design (copyleft) so that anyone can download the technical files and reproduce them freely through a FabLab or Makerspace, using digital manufacturing.
