Final weekend

Pay what you can

CHT/Totalism.org:
HYPERGALLERY

The weekend of 8 and 9 January is the last chance to see the “HYPERGALLERY” in the Permanently Practising studio: a new mixed-reality media for collaborative expression, deployed to portray the CHT/Totalism.org project's nomadic embedding in the nature-cultures of Canary Islands. ±20min loop, ±10 separate parts.

HYPERGALLERY was developed in Oct-Dec 2021 during a work period of CHT/Totalism.org in the Development Programme at Kunsthal Gent, as an extension to the E2H knowledge collectivity software.

The system mediates synchronous collaborative writing (of "pads") into multi-screen sequences, controls generative auto-exploration of hyperspace & media collections, and guides movable head lights to real-world fixtures. This allows for a powerful yet reasonably accessible multi-user, mixed-reality authoring — forming stories that combine material as distinct as whole websites, burst-mode photography, physical objects, and text fragments.
