Video and sound installation
︎ Michel Giesbrecht
WELCOME! WELCOME!, is an immersive video experience about millennials, the current mandatory happiness and the end of industrial ideology.
We are in a very special moment, where conventional markers that locate us are erased and everything becomes blurry. How can we explain a moment like the one we are experiencing, this very moment when everything seems ready to implode? Has every moment before this one felt the same way?
The orginal installation consisted of 5 trapezoidal projection screens,including 1 large main screen 4,7 meters long where creatures follow one another to speak to the audience.At the entrance of the area, two large flags with a “WELCOME” inscription greet visitors. They are then invited to sit on yoga mats to watch the video experience.
