Siga-Oi/Rio (Follow Oi/Rio de Janeiro)  Visual poem/installation at Oi Futuro Cultural Center in Ipanema, for the opening of the project Passagem (passage), curated by Alberto Saraiva, occupying several spaces outside and inside the cultural centre. On the street and at the entrance floor, black and white words referred to concrete poetry and bossa nova. In the display window, the artist proposed interactivity through the movement of sliding glass panels. On the stairs, the text was associated with the metallic sounds of words by the vibration produced by footsteps. Words made of adhesive vinyl pasted on different supports at Oi Futuro Cultural Center in Ipanema, among them were the display window at the entrance and the iron staircase.
