Boccini’s interactive tile panels are part of an ongoing experimental research with engineers and other partners. His work combines fine porcelain tiles with minerals, metal, sulphates and other elements. The high firing of the porcelain vitrifies the elements. The various panels emit coloured light which is responsive to different voices (young vs. old; male vs. female) and touch. The artist noted, “My idea is to create a ‘feeling’ between art and people with multi-media work. I’d like to develop the possibility of new conception of contemporary ceramics and try to create a new form of ceramic expression and ceramic evolution.

Interactive Technology Ceramics: Nicola Boccini, an Italian ceramist, presented his work “Evolution 14.04”. It is a set of 30 pieces of extremely thin ceramic plates that changes color following the frequency of the sounds it receives. Visitors were amazed at this ceramic piece and tried it enthusiastically! (New Taipei City Yingge Ceramics Museum)
“Painting with metal and light” 2013
By research, Pompei and Boccini developed an innovative approach towards ceramic techniques and the use of ceramic artifacts.Both artists share the passion for research and experiment and by this, draw the material beyond its boundaries , in an attempt to move its rigid borders in favor of free creativity.
Since years they make, with their original work, happenings and performances that unite different disciplines of art, like theatre, music and dance.
In this performance sound and light interact. The sound of a human voice is related to colour, interpreting several states of mind and emotions.
