The VR exhibition UNCANNY CONDITIONS delves into the challenges of human living in the digital age reflected in four artistic virtual reality experiences. Uncanny means strange or mysterious and refers to something beyond the ordinary or normal. The term Uncanny Valley refers to robots or avatars designed as humanoids. They appear almost, but never exactly, human and evoke an uncanny irritation for the viewer, a lack of authenticity. In this sense, uncanniness could also refer to digitally created imagery almost indistinguishable from reality. All these meanings occur in the virtual reality exhibition UNCANNY CONDITIONS.

 

The experimental visual meditation ASM(V)R by Salome Asega, Reese Donohue and Tongkwai Lulin deals with the impact of digital stimuli on the physical body. Geoffrey Lillemon's The Nail Polish Inferno creates an exuberant bubblegum strip club with illustrious characters of his own artistic past. Martina Menegon's artistic VR experience plug your nose and try to hum addresses the ephemerality yet tangibility of her own digitized human body. Jakob Kudsk Steensen's dystopian vision Aquaphobia focuses on human fear and how we address climate change and rising oceans.

 

The exhibition UNCANNY CONDITIONS is part of the FNY Festival. Located in the former Kunstpark Ost area in Munich characterized by exuberant nightlife, the contemporary international music festival provokes a cultural clash of all kinds of fine art and video art for high/low culture atmosphere.
