my task: concept, programming, direction, camera, color

The interactive and audiovisual installation av@ar puts the relationship between people and their medial reflection at the center of the experience. In this closed circuit installation, the control, dependencies, and aesthetic reference levels can be explored and controlled interactively with the entire body. A catalogue of emotions serves as audiovisual communication material and leads to a reflection about the systematic use of feelings. The dance with the medial mirror opens a space of experience in the tense atmosphere between the non-digital and the digital ego – the avatar.
av@ar was produced as diploma thesis by Manfred Borsch for Prof. Dr. Heike Sperling and Prof. Dr. Karin Welkert-Schmitt.
