Immersive Experience at the Waterkant Festival Kiel
Probably never before have we humans been so free. The dreams and goals we can give our lives seem limitless. Do I want to have a career or start a family? Do I want to travel the world or work for it? Do I act now or put it off until later? All too quickly we get lost in the maelstrom of possibilities, get lost in the labyrinth of goals, fail because of the multitude of options.
With her Infinity Room, Betty Müs leads us through the hall of mirrors of our ego. She shows us ways between vision and illusion.
Her video loop is a surreal collage of AI-generated portraits, landscapes and cosmic views. At the centre is the ego, the egocentric self-image that encounters the ecosphere with its seemingly limitless dreams and desires. As part of the VideoArt4Future initiative, the installation thus also sets an example for the ecological challenges of our planet.
What remains as a perhaps uncomfortable truth: Life is change – and you change with it. Get in, use your mind and enjoy the wild trip!
