The interactive and audiovisual installation av@ar puts the focus of the experience on the relationship between the individual person and their medial reflection. In a closed circuit, monitoring, dependencies and aesthetic planes of reference can be interactively experienced and controlled with the entire body. A catalogue of emotions is used as audiovisual communication material and initiates reflection by means of the systematic use of feelings. The dance with the medial mirror therefore opens up a realm of experience in the field between the non-digital and the digital self – your own avatar.
av@ar was developed as part of Manfred Borsch's final year project for Prof. Dr. Heike Sperling and Prof. Dr. Karin Welkert-Schmitt. Music: Johannes M. Arend. Concept and implementation: Manfred Borsch.
