The studio collaborates with different professional figures according to the needs of every project (curators, programmers, illustrators and graphic designers, makers, technicians, etc).
Through audio and video storytelling, the use of different media and
interactivity we enhance cultural heritage - historical, artistic,
architectural, archaeological and intangible - through its
reinterpretation and re-presentation in a new guise.
Focusing on themes such as memory, territory, community and identities we create evocative experiences around themes of collective interest. Manipulating media and playing with reality and perception we develop multi-layered visual and sound narratives that open up to new interpretations.
Combining interactivity, multi-vision, story fragmentation and space
design Tokonoma members gained over the years a unique experience in
video creation, video installations, interactive video environments,
multimedia experiences and exhibitions, museums and theatre
Technology and media thus are the means we use to create engaging experiences, aimed at increasing public participation and critical sense.
