Marvin Unger Interzone (2018)

A ritual place to celebrate the transcendency of nature. In collaboration with Hans-Peter Lutsch.

In this research-based project, we sat out to collect shapes and images connected to religion and the supernatural. Our aim was to understand the meaning of transcendence of objects and human beings. How will humans and their values change in the future. What will we be missing from our past? Gender?

The decay of the nature or the decay of our body? The Interzone is an imaginary place in the future to meant to celebrate being human. People will meet in a digital place to reminisce with rituals and celebrate the flaws and disadvantages of the old world. All while living in a new perfect Utopia.

Through the use of virtual reality glasses, it’s possible to leave the physical space of the exhibition and participate in three rituals in the Interzone. The viewer takes part in the liturgy (service) in the gap between the digital and physical world. By the use of cardboard glasses, the participant enters an immersive narrative.
