experience near death experience
Is the first part of a 3 level show of the room69 collective for this years Wrong biennale. In addition to the collectives members they invited several international digital artists to accompany them in experiencing virtual extremes.
Under the topic of overstimulation and oversimulation the digital show hosted in New Art City creates a paradoxical situation and oscillates between the highs and lows of our virtual worlds. On one hand dealing with being exposed to a perpetual stream of information and image online and addressing the problems that come with it - like cognitive and mental incapability to endure the data flood - the works itself are adding fuel to the flames and making issues even more obvious.On the other hand there is our desire for eternity, breaking up physical boundaries. Embracing the simulation, dematerialize and eventually transcend through our virtual avatars into utopia. By putting these concepts next to each other the contrast gets even more exaggerated ending up in a digital near death experience that gives a perception of what might be there to come.
