Do not hide.
Do not be discreet.
Go get lost. Purposely.
To be lost is to disrupt and disorganize.
To be lost is to exist in a realm of potential.
Staying on a path of assuredness is stagnant and predicated.
Straying from this path is creation in movement.
These mantras are the guiding forces behind the new VR exhibit ‘Drifting, browsing, cruising‘ imagined by the artists Theodoulos Polyviou and Eleni Diana Elia, through the Beyond Matter residency, hosted online in the ZKM Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe.
The point of the Beyond Matter project is to give international artists the ability and space to reimagine realms and structures that already exist. The current reimagining takes us to the Center for Art and Media in the UNESCO city of Karlsruhe, Germany. The museum is transformed into a mysterious chamber of ethereal colors, pathways, and blockades set to a haunting soundscape produced by Yako Vlev.
