VIRTUAL WALK

Do you want to explore the past or the future? In other words, a reality that simply ISN’T? Do you want for some artist to fling you directly into the middle of his work?

C.a.p.e. (Computer Automatic Personal Environment) is a futuristic system based on a combination of the latest technology and a revolutionary artistic concept that will evoke within you just this fascinating and unsettling illusion of being in another place and time. The project had ts world premiere at the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai.

The performers from Brussels’s CREW ensemble, headed by artistic director Eric Joris, have been experimenting with this idea for years, and have come up with a new way of experiencing journeys to different times. The participant receives video goggles, headphones, and a portable computer – thus begins the visit to filmed reality.

You will be right inside it and can move around as you like; you simply teleport yourself from one place and time to another. A combination of sight, sound, movement, and sometimes even tough creates an incredibly faithful illusion; C.a.p.e.’s famous variations have appeared at the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam (IDFA, 2011), the Metropolis festival in Copenhagen (KIT, 2013), Mois Multi in Quebec (2013), SCORES Tanzquartier in Vienna (2012), at TEDxGhent in Ghent (2011) and at other prestigious events.

CREW is a Brussels-based group of performers founded by Eric Joris. The group functions on the boundaries between art and science, performance and new technologies. Electronic and digital media combine with a unique artistic style to create performances that put the audience into the middle of the action while exploring the limits of modern technology. One clear them in CREW’s work is Eric Joris’s interest in utopias and in seeking out media that will enrich our experience with the flowing of time. CREW works with diverse forms and spaces, including performance art and visual art, to create large-scale events in public spaces and at scientific and academic conferences in Europe, China, Canada, and the United States.
