C H R Θ M A are opening the doors on the development of their recent projects. We are exploring how virtual reality and network technology can dive deep into “shared experience.” Our current focus is on how creative technology might viscerally connect us with the threatened ecosystem out beyond the city. We believe that questions of mental, social and environmental ecology do not simply inform each other, but depend on each other. Anthropologist Gregory Bateson writes that “the unit of survival is the organism plus environment. We are learning by bitter experience that the organism which destroys its environment destroys itself.”
You are invited to visit and explore work in progress, creatively input and imagine alternative collective territories from group dreaming to Virtual Reality. It’s not a show – we’re just opening the doors on what we’re doing and welcoming you into it.
Ring the bell for Flat 71. We’re in 13.00 – 17.00.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an appointment
C H R Θ M A is an artist’s group that creates public and participatory events that explore the flexible relationship between the physical and the virtual, the real world and imagined ones. We are inspired by cybernetics and ecological thinking; we investigate the implications of technology and science on our understand of ourselves as humans in the ecosphere. Our projects collaborate across disciplines, bringing in diverse perspectives from dance to architecture, magic to neuroscience, anthropology to physics.
