Through the hole is the way ‘Out-of-This-World’
Patricia J. Reis, Lukas Vincent Walcher
Through the hole is the way ‘Out-of-This-World’ is a site-specific interactive installation presented by media artists Patricia J. Reis in collaboration with Lukas Vincent Walcher in the open-air segment of the experimental station Kulturdrogerie in the 18th district of Vienna, Währing and is on view from 29th of May till 20th of June 2019. The work explores the concepts of temporality, communication and translation in heterotopias – culturally, institutionally and discursively ‘othered’ spaces, inviting the interactors to have an embodied experience of the movement of a flag in the sky that can be observed underneath a temporary pavilion.
The visual and physical information of an object’s movement — the oscillation of the flag — is translated into sensorial and haptic codes that the interactor can physically receive through motion feedback, embedded in a sculptural object that serve as a seat, at the intersection of the public and private space.
