Theodoulos Polyvious and Eleni Diana Elias VR site-specific installation becomes a place where ritual, ideology and architecture are shifted to reflect the non-religious, the sexual, and the everyday in conversation with the ideological architecture of the museum itself.

About

The symbolic and material boundaries of the museum are being renegotiated inviting viewers to find new ways to compromise within these reconfigured spaces. The silmultaneous use of the pair of headsets allows users to encounter each other and engage in body-less drifting challenging notions of presence and embodiment.

Using a code the artists have developed in collaboration with David Kaskel (founder of Breaking Forth in London), the physical boundaries of the space will be calibrated to meet the virtual ones seen through the VR headsets, making ones experience of the installation immersive and tangible.

Others may experience the work not through the VR headsets but through the intimacy and voyeurism of watching the visitors in the first group experiencing the virtual world. The floorplan which is vinyl print on the ground, it indicates the boundaries of the space seen in the VR world.

Theodoulos Polyviou and Eleni Diana Elia are currently artists-in-residence at the ZKM | Hertz-Lab. They were invited in the framework of the cooperation project Beyond Matter.
