Uranio Framework

https://github.com/x71c9/uranio-cli
Uranio is an open-source framework written in TypeScript for developing CRUD and GraphQL APIs. By defining just a few files for the schema, it generates a full API service running on Express.js or Apollo, or both. It can interact with any database, SQL, and NoSQL. It then auto-generates the software development kit for the client. Also, it has a module for building a full administration panel for interacting with an API from the browser. The panel is built using Vue and Nuxt.js.

Princess of Asturias Awards

https://www.fpa.es/en/princess-of-asturias-awards/
A video installation for the Princess of Asturias Awards 2021 in Oviedo, Spain, for the commissioned MAEID project Sylva. The project was launched in collaboration with LOREM.

Nemozena

https://andreareni.com/nzena
In 2018, I created an immersive audio installation for Nemozena's pavilion during Dubai Design Week.

I developed software connected to six speakers and six motion sensors. The visitors were triggering the sounds by walking along the perimeter of the installation. Each sensor controlled a different speaker, generating a 3D sound environment. The people were in control of the outcome.

Virtua Posse

https://andreareni.com/virtua-posse
Virtua Posse is a collective I founded in 2019 with Jacopo Tripodi and Gianluca Lonigro. They mainly focus on extreme aesthetics and coding.

We were asked to make an exhibition in Saint Petersburg at FFTN and showcase their work. For this project, I made an augmented reality experience and a video demo that was shown at RAF25, a techno club inside a Soviet bunker.

Ars Electronica

https://andreareni.com/eye-of-the-other
Eye of the other is a project made by MAEID – Future Retrospective Narrative in Linz in 2019 and Phytophilia – Chlorophobia – Situated Knowledge in Bourges.

For this project, I trained a generative adversarial network that can generate echolocation spectrograms of nectar-feeding bats. The installation tries to represent what a bat can see through its ultrasound range.

Venice Biennale

https://andreareni.com/venice-biennale
I made the video installation for the MAEID project presented at the Biennale of Architecture 2021 in Venice. The project was delivered in collaboration with LOREM.
