nowhere

'Nowhere' is a research project that Celine Daemen developed in the context of Muzieklab of Intro in Situ and VIA ZUID and Chronosphere lab of De Effenaar Smart Vennue. Together with writer Olivier Herter, Composer Sterre Konijn and Art Director Aron Fels, she explored the physicality of virtual space and the role of music in creating immersive experiences. 

As the end result of this research, they presented a Virtual Reality opera called 'Nowhere', in which music and VR take you to a fascinating in-between space. Between being and non-being. Between people and technology. Between reality and chaos. Between hold and surrender.

 

"I have resigned myself

and laid off and go after me

i am a shape

and am the condition

the passing and time"
