My Lonesome Hologram

Nina Wesemann, Daniel Hengst, Frank Génot, Lars Ullrich 

Germany 2016, Virtual Reality Installation


You’re alone on an island full of people but nobody sees you. You can listen to them, watch them unabashedly, but not interact with them. They stand in space like artefacts. One of these holograms looks like you. How do you still justify your existence when nobody perceives you? This is about the ambivalence of being alone in a group, about exploring the other and the familiar. The visitors to the exhibition are scanned as holograms, interviewed and can then explore the island themselves.

Notes on Blindness

Arnaud Colinart, Amaury La Burthe, Peter Middleton, James

Spinney, Beatrice Lartique, Arnaud Desjardins, Fabien Togman

France, UK 2016, VR-Experience


In his audio diary John Hull reflects on what it means to be blind, which allows us access to a world without vision on a both philosophical and poetic level. Based on audio recordings, this six-part interactive documentary examines John’s cognitive and emotional experience of blindness. Binaural sound and interactive 3D animations enable visitors to immerse themselves intimately in specific memories and places from John’s diary.

Life to Come 360° –
Through the Eyes of a Premature Baby

Fouzi Louahem, Anton Iffland Stettner

France 2016, VR-Experience


We don’t remember the first days of our life, especially the ones right after birth. Suddenly we’re in the world – the first vague memories of some day, somewhere emerge. Our long term memory only starts to develop in the second year of our life. The beginning of life remains a dim hole in our memory. With “Life to Come 360°” audiences can enter the virtual reality of a neonatal ward and experience life there from the point of view of a preemie. The docu-fiction is part of the “ARTE360” app.

Im Märkischen Sand

Nina Mair, Matthias Neumann, Katalin Ambrus

Germany, Italy 2015, Web Documentary


Only four survived. The other 127 were dead when the Germans hastily buried their bodies. Antonio Ceseri, one of the four, could hardly breathe under the sand. Sebaldushof near Treuenbrietzen was one of 40,000 labour camps in Nazi Germany. “The Sandmine” is a journey deep into a forgotten part of German-Italian history. In six chapters and 24 episodes the web documentary employs a distinct mixture of animation and documentation to uncover war crimes that seemed long buried under the sand.


Pierre Cattan, Alexandrine Stehelin, Marietta Ren

France 2016


It starts slowly. Fish are swimming through the air. A veil descends over our eyes before everything liquefies. And then the giant white whales … This is the story of Audrey, a girl who hallucinates whales all around her. An intimate adventure begins – that of a personal transformation. “Phallaina” is a haunting, vertically scrollable graphic novel with parallax effects. A hybrid narrative form, beautifully illustrated by Marietta Ren.


Pascel Hanke

Germany 2016, 360°-Doku


The heart beats faster, the pulse races, sweat pours. Chewing gum is the only thing that calms you down. How does it feel when everyday errands and situations become life-threatening hazards? We follow the protagonist Oscar who fights agoraphobia every day. It’s the fear of losing control that ties Oscar to his home. The 360° documentary creates a filmic space around Oscar that takes us right to the core of his being.
