VR Collider

Oksana Chepelyk (UA)

VR COLLIDER works with time, public space & history. It examines the iconic places of C20-21 political history through idea of collisions. It deals with events in public spaces that influenced a subsequent historical development. A virtual environment built as a system of platforms: Pyramid, Collider, Double Moebius & Prypiat Room that fly over the planet Earth & capture the vibrations of time-space, presented by video panoramas, that are revolved with acceleration in an art collider, activating a mechanism of audio-visual jumps, where some fragments can be substituted by archival videos followed by visual transmutations. It is a visual narration about the political flashpoints. VR COLLIDER, working with the events that have formed out world raises the question: is a person a particle in the system of accelerators of global forces, or the energy of interaction investigating new values, new forms of thought & new ways of existence in the world, insisting that another world is possible?
