From 3 September to 5 October 2021, the mixed reality installation TRANSIENT EXPOSURE can be experienced in Berlin-Mitte! It is the result of the collaboration between the INKA project XR_Unites at the HTW Berlin, the artists’ collective reVerb and the Chitrasena Dance Company – the result of XR_Unites’ first OPEN CALL.
The performance venue is the Media Theatre of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the Humboldt-Universität Berlin.
Two to three visitors at a time can enter the installation with the mixed reality glasses HoloLens and immerse themselves in a 15-minute multimedia experience: In the physical world, the installation was conciously kept very minimal with rattan blinds, a fan and a large metal box. Archive material from the Chitrasena Dance Company in combination with a 3D sound collage from Colombo and partly interactive 2D and 3D elements formed the digital level of the installation, which thrilled many visitors.
»How seemingly simple and natural analogue and digital space interpenetrate here, how skilfully you guide the visitors, how lovingly and yet astutely you curate and stage the archive material – it all makes you want more!« wrote one visitor shortly after the experience.
