2018 Neighbo/u/rhood

The theme of the 2018 SANTORINI BIENNALE is Neighbo/u/rhood. Digital Neigborhood will be the focus of IMMERSIVIA.

KIKOS, the founder of Santorini Biennale outlined, as you can see in a sketch in 2016 the ways. How to bring this to the IMMERSIVIA? My first thought was a cubic universe with a capacity of 216 worlds.

"Get a free world and create INFINITECUBES." This was the idea I started with to prepare the details in 2017. Here some lines from this early settings:

When you are inside your world you dont see the worlds outside. You dont know what is beyond your walls. You need to visit your neighbours to see. For this you drift sitting on a blue recliner seat. The drift is based on your dreams when you sleep. When you choose to be awake you can control the drift of the seat: left, right, up, down, forward, backward.

I said you dont see the worlds outside, but there are no walls. There is an infite reflexion of your world until you come to the border, when you transit. It points back to an installment „the man behind the mirror“ that was presented by Navah Dreams on Paros in 2011.

At this time the running of the Santorini Biennale was set for early summer 2018. Then the timetable changed, but fundings have been already fixed for the IMMERSIVIA.

This lead to the call for 1Biennale, the first Digital Biennale, happening in opensimulator which deadline is April 30, 2018. 1Biennale stands on its own, but is presented inside IMMERSIVIA / Santorini, Greece so virtual and real overlaps. Also an educational focus was added which is covered by VISIT in Germany and worldwide by Biennale Institute.
