This way the virtual museum works is similar to high resolution computer games. The spaces function as a reduced an in the same time far-flung background to the works. One can move around these works, close up to them, get closer and zoom in on them. And you can also walk around each piece or get a distant view. This exhibithon is the first completed phase of a long-term projekt.

Curator: Eike
Programming: Utz Berg


Visitors to this exhibition at Videospace Budapest can operate the programme using a high-performance computer and other very simple tools. The works are projected on a large white surfce. What the audience sees is a projection of the programme. The view here also strengthens the interpenetration of virtual and real spaces.


The exhibition is part of the series What's going on? – Contemporary art in Hungary, initiated by Kunsthalle Budapest as part of the Renaisance year – 2008.
