TEMPORARY.SHOW

Virtual Mixing designates an interaction between effects which exist in different dimensions and on separate levels. This exhibition will open the [v]room of requirement to the public, an artwork by Elaine Bonavia and a space in virtual reality for self-dialogue, musing and reflection. Born out of introspection on her remote relations with Malta, some of the underlying themes in the work include unfulfilled desire, the notion of touching from a distance and shifting modes of perspectives and boundaries.

Moments from an exchange between participants who were invited to do a virtual room swap during the initial stage of the project. The casual domestic and mysterious version of each person was constructed in 3D and subsequently, interventions took place in VR between Malta, Berlin and Paris. Some of the participants developed a work out of this experience, which will also be part of the exhibition.
