Evolution of Virtual Reality, 2017
What is real? What is reality? What is the difference between real and fake? Between an original and a copy? Evolution of Virtual Reality – In Progress, displays VR headsets telling 'creation' stories in different languages. The work plays with VR as a medium, using 360 YouTube footage with an added layer as well as own footage.
Reproduction Ongoing - in process - presents a history of storytelling and its technologies. A similar history line is given in Walter Benjamin's The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction and Jim Blascovich's & Jeremy Bailenson's Infinite Reality. Although the works on display give a distorted history line, it somehow seems chronological, but at the same time it is not. Reproduction – Ongoing is a series of copies, questioning the differences, similarities and values of manual and mechanical reproductions of 'originals'.
