Abstract [en]

Next to You at Korsvägen is a site-specific mixed reality walk, made as an interactive and private exploration, charged by an app for smartphones. The individual audience participants hold smartphones in their hands and have headphones on. It is a documentary form of storytelling with branching narratives where the user is taken to different locations at the triangular platform in search for “the new world”. The work remixes the city's visions of Göteborg as a destination with quotes from Vilhelm Moberg's novel series Utvandrarna (The Emigrants), and facts about Korsvägen. Via the smartphone’s screen and the headphones, the user encounters a critical montage of different stories about Korsvägen and related events, told through voice, binaural sound, film, text and 3D-animations, at specific locations at the platform. It is an immersive experience in which the user is the protagonist, yet a walk done with open ears, open eyes and open senses. The app uses augmented (AR) and mixed reality (MR) technologies together with location-aware applications. Artistically these technologies are used to provide multiple layers of the site and unfold the potential transactions between body, imagination, senses and environment . The audience sees and feels one thing in reality, hears/sees another via the smartphone, and creates a third in their own imagination and thought. All information, i.e. sound, narration, videos, and animations, are created and developed on site. They are therefore site specific and interact in a nuanced way with the physical world, the architecture and the situation. Duration: 35- 40 min depending on choices made along the walk. Capacity: 1 person per smartphone. People start with 3-5 minutes intervals. The app: Runs on both iPhones and Androids. Available free of charge at App Store and Google Play. Setting 1: Equipment - smartphone and headphones - is handed out, and the work is experienced during the decided opening hours. Setting 2: People download the app on their own smartphone and use with their own headphones, at any time. Premiere: September 2017 at GIBCA Extended - Gothenburg International Biennial for Contemporary Art.
