Mixed-Reality Technologies are expanding out physical dimension more and more – including our day-to-day living space. Hybrid worlds are being created in which real and virtual objects coexist. The eco exhibition in conjunction with the IMM / Passagen 2017 builds a bridge between the physical and virtual worlds.

Interaction with the installation is interpreted by software and translated into a virtual object by means of algorithms. With their own creations, guests leave a temporary footprint in digital space. Over time, a collective work is created which is visible through Mixed Reality.

PASSAGEN at eco from 16 to 22 January 2017

Mon to Fri 12–8.00 pm, Sat 12–6.00pm, Sun 12–5.00pm
Parking via Oskar-Jäger-Strasse 170
