Guided tour

Un_i[n]verso is as an immersive experience due to its technical construction, but also due to the viewer’s position in the story. More specifically, it begins with the landing of an alien form on an imaginary earth that slowly turns from digital to concrete. The design of the entire work becomes the staging of a laboratory of investigation, a stage that is slowly moulded, deconstructed and redesigned to ultimately reveal the contradictions, premises and dark sides of the human. A meta level that rises to Hans Blumenberg’s concept “shipwreck with spectator”, in which man’s attitude towards life and history is reflected: the need for security and the taste for risk, extraneousness and involvement, contemplation and action. The viewer, however, at the end becomes shipwrecked, with alien spectator.
