28.9.–7.10.2018

What immersion can mean in the best case and the undreamed-of worlds virtual reality has in store for us was made more than vivid by the experience THE LACUNA SHIFTS – ANNEX by Leonhard Lass and Gregor Ladenhauf. First, we looked into a mirror and saw our reflection, then the art installation drew us in, putting us under its spell completely and developing an irresistible draw. Just as in Lewis Carroll’s wonderland, mutating architectural forms joined into a surreal scenario that’s different every time and provides a variety of exits depending on the direction of the gaze. The enlarged sequel to the 2017 work was on display at the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK for the first time in Austria. To paraphrase Carroll: If you don’t know where you’re going, any road can take you there.
