Next to you at Korsvägen
Site-specific mixed reality walk by Marika Hedemyr
Where are you going? How do you relate to the person next to you? A smartphone in your hand can open up new worlds and connections, and also create isolated bubbles and segmented societies. In Next to You at Korsvägen, Hedemyr explores this paradox through an interactive walk where your choice of direction is crucial for the course of events. A private mixed-reality situation is created where the experience of the place and the passers-by is intensified. In which direction are you heading? Get ready!
The work is created for and experienced at Korsvägen in Gothenburg. You can do the walk on your own via your smartphone and headphones, or borrow equipment when the team is on location.
Marika Hedemyr's art explores emotional and political relationships between people and places. In her latest public works, she expands choreography and storytelling through new technology.
