Hi Netbehaviour,

In december and later again in February I had the occasion to discover VR
during a residency in Lyon.

I have never worn a VR headset and I am not someone very much interested in
games, so it was with a bit of hesitation I went to Lyon to try to get my
head around it.

*Where are we in VR space? In what is called Third Space? or in a liminal
space? and is it important to know where we are? Is the “I” still important
in there, and how do we meet an other? What other ? How far are we giving
up control? How far do we dissolve, get lost? Who arranges what? And what
relationship to our body can we have, do we have? Could a VR experience
become like an intractive entanglement training?*

It turned out to be a very interesting experience. I tried to make some of
it available to nonFrench speaking people.

Wh(o/at) <=> arranges <=> When. Performance. Archives, notes, protocol,
video, photos.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions. I would love to
continue reserching VR in the in between zone. Not from the inside, nor
from the outside, but on the border of both.
