NATURA OPERANS is a site-specific Mixed Reality Installation based on the four temperament theory derived from humoralism. In this, the human personality divides into four temperaments: phlegmatic, melancholic, choleric and sanguine. According to this ancient concept, the following combinations of qualities associated with these personality types: cold/wet, cold/dry, hot/humid and hot/dry. The installation in the real environment contains indicators to measure these qualities. In the virtual space (based on a 360° image of the exhibition space) these elements appear as well and what only imagined in the real environment is made visible and tangible here: the temperament of the room.
