We are happy to announce the fourth edition of FREISPIEL: a series of short-term residencies and presentations by (inter)national artists dealing with issues of cultural orders and their aesthetic and socio-political influences in our future-driven present.
Our next guests will be Munich based artists Barbara Herold feat. Kim Twiddle LIVE with the synaesthetic challenge PARCOUR – suspend traditional patterns of perception, explore visual borderline experiences and enable a new transcendental seeing while generating surreal soundscapes!
In her artistic practice, Barbara Herold explores playful systems in the threshold space of the real and the digital and develops interactive AR and VR worlds that can be physically experienced in the overlapping of the virtual and the real. In collaboration with e-composer Kim Twiddle, Barbara Herold developed the colour-form-music composer PARCOUR, a VR experiment on „Neues Sehen" (according to W. Benjamin). Through optical abstraction, stereoscopic overlays and interactive sound modulation, retro video game landscapes become an aesthetic sensual and new consciousness experience.
The project was funded by FFF Bayern and NeuStartKultur.
PARCOUR will be premiered at Rosa Stern Space. The VR will be graphically extended into the physical space, accessible via a gate. Kim Twiddle will realize electronic live acts and a sound installation based on sound material generated by VR users at Rosa Stern Space and other venues – PARCOUR on tour (tba)...
The exhibition is funded by Kulturreferat München.
Barbara Herold and Kim Twiddle have been working on VR/AR projects since 2017, which can be experienced as geo-based installations in public spaces, among other places.
