[S.I.E], an acronym for Space Interactional Experience, is an interdisciplinary art, science and technology group whose key divulgative concern is to bring people, as mundane users of technology, "one step closer" to the immensity of the physical reality, perceived through the limits of human knowledge/cognition, via experiential and immersive installations.

The group, composed by six members and open to collaboration, meet at MedialLab Prado Madrid and Google Campus. The group has been active since Winter 2016, after coinciding in the NASA SpaceAppsChallenge 2016 competition, where the project First took form. We recently presented the concept behind the BlackSonicHole project together with The Artian at the Google Campus in Madrid.
