The Thin Layer (2016/17) exhibited at SHOW RCA, London
Concept, Words, Visuals by Hanna Schrage
Music and Sound Design by Karim Younis
The Thin layer is a virtual reality installation. The viewer is invited to enter a virtual world through a veiled space. Their journey through this world takes them through various stages of abstraction until they are left in an entirely undefinable space.
The project investigates our personal window into the world, our personal reality into the virtual. The experience strips away layers of normality, removing points of reference until the viewer finds themselves in a white space, at once agoraphobic and claustrophobic. A space without rules and absolute freedom but also without reference, comfort, a past or a future, a place the viewer cannot understand, measure by their experience, see through their own window.
