I am one of the co-founders of Sensistan. I am an engineer turned tech artist and projection-mapper. Having lived and travelled across the world, I have seen unique museums, festivals and art spaces around the world. After co-founding an NGO, The Cyrcus Collective,on using tech-art for therapy for underprivileged kids, I discovered how powerful it can be, to make available imagination and magic with tech - not only for children in crisis. Also to found the NGO, we wanted to open a permanent space. After some consideration, we decided on India, my birth country and Goa, because it has become India's creative hub. Together with a group of likeminded professionals, creative coders, artists, performers, curators, entrepreneurs we started Sensistan - an immersive place through which we will guide you to discover our interactive art.
We offer you a fruity refreshment, depending on the fruits of the season and the heat of the day.
