In english language
in the context of the thematic focus ›Letting Go‹.
›How To Walk On Water‹ is a performance installation, that guides you through the virtual landscape, exploring the duality of human presence in our physical space and the space of the internet. You are invited to take a walk without moving, passing through the spaces in-between where our fragmented thoughts are floating. Come and reflect on this moment we usually experience alone in our rooms, in a collective of an audience through the performing non-humans.
Through the vast possibilities, all collected for us on the internet, we engage in the echo chambers guided by the internet algorithms. The intimacy we might look for is redirected from another to ourselves. Unlike the physical space we inhabit, the one we can measure, touch, smell and taste, the space of the internet draws one in, scrolls, scatters, collects and manipulates. Here one can find everything, but in the process, one can forget what it is one has set out to find.
