VR_Art during VR Sci Fest

April 16, 2017

The Färgfabriken activities during the VR SCI FEST is a part of the Expanded Societies.

Färgfabriken is a venue for art and discussions around architecture and city planning.

At the moment Färgfabriken is developing the project Expanded Societies. The project runs from spring 2016 until 2019 and will through seminars, workshops and exhibitions discuss society, city development, and the digitalization.

Seminar: VR and storytelling

VR means new strategies and possibilities of storytelling and communication through images. In the seminar, we will invite artists, scientists, architects and city planners to discuss and workshop the future of VR and AR. More information within soon.

Installation: Anastasios Logothetis ‘See deep web trouble in the bubble loop’

Anastasios Logotehtis will show his video installation Sea Deep Web Trouble in the Bubble Loop in one of Färgfabriken’s project room. The installation mixes sculptural objects with video projections. The clay sculptures create physical room and they functions as portals for different virtual underwater worlds. If the sculptures look dry and concrete the virtual applications functions as the dream worlds and the home of the mollusks. Of course it is artistic visions but Logothetis reflects on how physical and virtual realities connects to each other. These two worlds are more and more merging together into an entity, in practice and in theory. The connections and the interdependency are growing that strong.

Installation: Lundahl & Seitl

 The artists Christer Lundahl and Martina Seitl mix methodology from art, dance and choreography. In their projects, they create experiences that are evoked by the use of sound, touch and spatial movement rather than sight.

In the spring of 2017 they have and exhibition and Kunstmuseum Bonn in Germany. Here the visitor will experience some of the painting and sculptures of the museum collection filtered through cell phone text messages, sounds, and copies of the pieces. A smaller version of the project will be shown at Färgfabriken during the VR Sci Fest.

Lundahl & Seitl’s work addresses important questions relating to the VR and AR development: How do images and memory work? How do we create our inner images? Can they be controlled and manipulated? And if, what does that mean?
