Hakanaï is the union of two Japanese characters—one meaning “man” and the other “dream”—used to define the ephemeral and the fragile. In this dreamlike environment, a single dancer moves within a cube, interacting with the images projected on its walls, tracing arcing parabolas and sine waves with hands, arms, and feet.

The installation combines CGI, video projection mapping, and sensors to dynamically respond to the dancer’s movements and proximity. Its visuals and sounds are generated and animated live, offering a different performance for each and every iteration.
