The world premiere of VR Control Negative dir. Monika Mas?o? at Dok Leipzig!
The Western culture of self-optimisation is based on the idea that one can control all aspects of life. This VR experience subjects us to a psychological experiment, confronting us with feelings such as frustration, helplessness, stress, rage and grief to show: Control is an illusion. Step by step, we are led from physical activation to contemplative perception.

VR Nightsss at the Camera Action Festival in ?ód?
VR Nightsss by Weronika Lewandowska and Sandra Frydrysiak will be presented the Camera Action Festival at the Film School in ?ód?
October 13-16, Szklarnia Gallery, New Media Building
“Noccc” is a virtual, erotic poem in which the audience is invited to an interactive experience of poetry and dance. The starting point for the experimental VR animation was a slam poem by Weronika Lewandowska. The artist uses sounds characteristic of the Polish language, creating onomatopoeic landscapes that cross language barriers. To create the artist’s experience, she was inspired by a research project devoted to the perception of dance and movement in virtual reality, which they carried out at the SWPS University while writing their doctoral dissertations on art. “Nightsss” is the first Polish VR production that premiered at Sundance – the most important festival of independent cinema in the world.
