“Kurika” presents itself as a research project / tribute to the literature work “Cão como Nós” by Manuel Alegre. It was publicly presented as an artwork at “Escritaria2019” both as an interactive mixed reality and Virtual Reality installation. In it, a three-dimensional dog made up of words (all of the Alphabet) responds to voice commands (barking if its name “Kurika” is said) and to movements of the audience, triggering sounds and moving images of places of experiences and affections. The main elements of a continuous nonlinear narrative triggered by the interaction. Therefore, the present paper speaks about the development of this project and argues the role of a luminous plane where virtual and real words relate to memory.
