The immersive performance unfolds within a visually striking exhibition space. The staging gives a fragmented impression of the hidden virtual space that appear inside the headset. With the visitors body and senses as active medium, triggered through VR, hyperconnected objects and the unseen touch of a performer, the artwork reveals how memory allows for a string of data to be passed through matter, across time. From Earths deep past through to its post-anthropocene future, the surface of the earth is tightly connected with the living, and life with conscious experience. In its entirety, this work explores the collective memory and experiences we pass on through generations: what to fear, what to value, how to live, how to care for the world of tomorrow Each of which is more vital than ever.
Age recommendation: 15+
