As I am currently the only one of Second Front who has Room scale VR, “we’d” love to work with you in this new space.

Subject: [NetBehaviour] VR performance + residency. Traces
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.
