Absence seizures are a type of epilepsy that affects mainly children and adolescents. Those affected are “absent” for a few seconds – often a hundred times a day. Where are they during their absence? This multi-sensory VR experience is like a dream, offering insights into the protagonists’ worlds that are almost impossible to describe in words.

Lars Rummel, Marie Hinkelmann

Deep (Multiplayer Version)

A streak of light floats in the water, controlled only by your breath. It’s like a brief vacation that takes place in one’s head, but this meditative journey can also be shared with others.

A streak of light floats in the water, controlled only by your breath. It’s like a brief vacation that takes place in one’s head, but this meditative journey can also be shared with others. In the virtual reality installation “Deep”, modern technology is combined with Yoga breathing techniques to create a new physical experience.

In the exhibition three players can simultaneously enter a virtual space, while the audience delve into an underwater world in Tim van Cromvoirt’s multimedia installation “Lungplants”.
