expanding dreamscapes

Exhibition of Stills on Acylic Glass

 

EXPANDING DREAMSCAPES is former fluid liveness from virtual reality hardening in stills on acrylic glass in the analog world. It’s the disconnection of shared experiences from hardware, the internet, electricity, servers and harddrives. On display: worlds built by strangers, temporarily inhabited by colleagues and guests donning avatars built by more strangers. Interviews, workshop sessions, theatre, preparations, explorative tours. Will these be the motifs our children will send us from their holidays? 

 

Over the last years, Katharina Haverich has worked in various constellations in the social VR app VRChat. For EXPANDING DREAMSCAPES she is resorting to a familiar form of sharing moments: pictures - or video stills, to be precise - taken from footage shot by Arne Vogelgesang, Lenn Blaschke, LilBagel, VirtuaLilly & VRCon Team, Ethan Crank, ShaggyMummy & Camera Crew and herself. With the support of AI image enhancement software she presents a selection of large scale prints on fluorescent acrylic glass. 

 

Haverich works at the intersection of media and theatre under the influence of dreams. As a conceptual performance artist, she stages dream-based sequences in digital and physical spheres. At Flutgraben, she explores the translation of digital experiences into the physical space.
