II (2009)

Sponsor: Chronus Art Center, Host: V2_Lab

II invites the audience to explore the virtual spaces which Barri made in Versum for themselves. All the sounds, rhythms, shapes and colors to create audiovisual compositions are given, but it is up to the audience to do the actual composing. By moving physical avatars – equipped with speakers and a video screen – in the physical space, they also simultaneously move around in a common virtual space. The audience can thus, simply by moving these avatars around, create music together with other participants and direct their own abstract movies in the process.

This project was developed during a residency as part of a Summer Sessions residency at V2_.
