FOR TAKING PART
Fields is a mixed reality installation composed of a
stage, a back-projected video wall and an interface
to the Internet. Visitors are engulfed in a soundscape
consisting of the four voices of media philosophers
Vilem Flusser, Marvin Minsky, Paul Virilio and Josef
Weizenbaum, together with sound samples.
One or two
protagonists control the sound stage by their position.
The layers of language and sound of each participant
intersect and weave together, thereby generating an
environment of communication. That communication is
augmented by a visual map, projected on one of the walls,
showing the position of each participant with an avatar.
The mixed reality stage superimposes physical and audio-visual
virtual space and is perceived as a room furnished with
