Stretching Senses School Festival - VR World Building for planetary emergency

Zu diesem Event

How can we stretch our senses to inhabit earthly worlds at other scales? How shall we translate the scientific perceptions apparatus to common sense (and back)? The Stretching Senses School festival exhibits site-specific Virtual Reality artworks from ongoing research at the cluster of excellence Matters of Activity.

The critique of anthropocentric narratives is growing, with the climate crisis as a backdrop. It is necessary to explore inventive and inspirational modes to share a new planetary awareness. We are inviting the public to encounter six experimental playgrounds between environmental humanities and creative coding. Envisioned as a long-term co-educative collaboration between multimodal anthropology and immersive interaction art, the project aims at shifting the attention of the visitors to the possibilities of digitally staging the embedded of humans and other earthly beings.

Exploring limestone at the atomic level, feeling it grow from the inside and seeing its dispersion as urban landscape (Subterranean Matters); experiencing an amphitheater through vibrations of head-mounted willow branches (Antennas); reaching out to the hidden energies of things around us and the stories they trigger (Leaking Objects); touching the surface of cellular tissues as if you were the probe of a force scanning microscope (Virtual Sensing Knife & Haptic Hanbok). The stretching senses school festival gives the stage to matters and things through VR Installations and digital performance lectures from world-class environmental thinkers Tim Morton, Dominic Boyer, Lisa Messeri and John Tresch.
