ABOUT THE CONCEPTSpace, understood as an environment, and time, understood as a progressive audio-visual experience, are identity components of this immersive art form. The long-lasting effects are the survival of the most intangible emotions, exchange and sharing, the creation of new processes of materialization in art.
If the exhibition turns into a film or theater set, the public itself become the actors. Documentation of the participants' actions through photos and videos shared on social media, becomes part of the creative process, expanding the boundaries of the exhibition itself.Cultural productions are subjected to a re-reading-relocation by visitors, which certify the ubiquity of optical instruments and their current prevalence on any other means of production and social sharing. Immersive art allows multiple and simultaneous views on the work.
The viewer/actor is an integral part of the immersive work.
