28.9.–7.10.2018

Space: the final frontier. The contemplative virtual-reality experience AFTERLIFE, which was inspired by Buddhist techniques, invited visitors to escape earthly worlds and thoughts and let go of expectations and cares. The work, created in a collaboration of Herwig Scherabon, Arno Deutschbauer, Michael Ari, and Lukas Fliszar, is based primarily on the idea of maintaining freedom: minimalistic and contemplative spaces, spaces large as the universe where immersion’s possible – spaces that can be left and alternated through a concentrated, targeted gaze on certain heavenly bodies. Thus, AFTERLIFE represents a kind of meditative experience in which sound and visual design go hand in hand and lead us into new environments.
