Persona is the brainchild of the Italian born, Brazil based, multimedia artist, Roberto Campadello, who, during the late 1960s and early '70s became highly regarded for a body of work that drew heavily on the I Ching.

Notable among these was interactive installation for São Paulo’s XII Bienal in 1973, where, via an octagonal structure of mirrors, participants were guided by Campadello through meditations and cosmic dances. It was this work that laid the crucial groundwork for The Game of Changes, a mystical interactive artwork / game - blurring the boundaries between the real and unreal through reflection and translucence.

Originally issued in a limited edition, and consisting of a box with a mirror, candles, and a 10" soundtrack - the album Som by Persona - to be played as it unfolded, it remains among the most coveted artefacts of Latin American experimentalism of the last half century.
