THE VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE IS LIVE NOW!
IMMERSE_ME IST BEST EXPERIENCED ON A PC OR LAPTOP.
Welcome to (Un)Posing_Immerse_Me!
We live in a world in which everyone tries to present themselves as authentically as possible. Be it on social media or other digital platforms. But what does it really mean to be authentic? In the context of the virtual (Un)Posing_Immerse_Me Experience, I would like to explore these questions with you and show you new possibilities of staging the individual in the virtual world. Dive with me into a minimal-theatrical world between MultiMedia and Performance and let yourself be surprised by immersive spatial structures. Become part of a shared experience and let’s question the new-ordered world around us together.
Who am I REALLY in the age of digitalization? One thing is certain: no one has to be who they think they are. Or who you think you are.
Posing, derived from the English “to pose,” is a term from the world of advertising and fashion that describes posing for photo shoots, advertising shoots, events or similar. In essence, it is a strategically directed display. But is there a counter design at all? Can’t a person pose? No matter whether on the street or on the Internet: Everyone tries to stage themselves as authentically as possible – a paradox and (in social media) a dehumanization in the attempt to become a realistic, living icon of oneself.
From this consideration KarinsMedia has developed the concept of “(Un)Posing”.
“Immerse_Me” is a minimal-theatrical experiment between MultiMedia and performance. The focus is on the question of the possibilities of staging the individual in public-social space as well as in the dynamic virtual world. KarinsMedia wants to free itself from technical and formal constraints and play freely. KarinsMedia ventures forward and dives deeper into the work with immersive spatial structures – videomapping meets live performance. The basis is curiosity about the manifold transformation possibilities of the human body.
“(Un)posing” is a “pop-up MultiMedia performance experiment” in which someone stands still for 15 minutes in public space in the midst of people passing by and becomes a field of interference. “(Un)Posing” poses the question of who is being observed and who is observing. “(Un)Posing” creates a temporary shared space of experience, questions and explores new (appropriation of) orders.
