Experimentell | Filmhaus (2018)

Writer: Danielle Küchler Flores
Producer: Danielle Küchler Flores
Actors: Jules Gisler & Sonja Hartman

Synopsis: The experience of this VR installation begins in a virtual space: coded walls and electrical pulses represent the encrypted complexity of our world. A walkable glass ball in the middle of the room offers space and time to find yourself. In the course of the meditation the glasses seem to suffer from a technical malfunction, whereby one is torn out of the intact world and inadvertently gets a glimpse of what is really behind the glass ball. De-structure, a `””self-discovery meditation””; that goes wrong, in which one experiences one`s own powerlessness at first hand in the prevailing discrepancies in the distribution of social power and begins to question the use and misuse of technology.
