We had the pleasure to present Lucid Peninsula in Austria again. It was shown as part of Hotel Obscura, a project initiated by Triage (AU), currently being developed and produced by Triage, Kara Ward productions & Arts House in Australia and Die Fabrikanten (AT), Mezzanine Spectacles (FR) & Ohi Pezoume (GR) in Europe.
Lucid Peninsula is an interactive installation designed to immerse participants, sketched as post-apocalyptic storyworld where changes to the Earth’s atmosphere have led to the emergence of new species, conditions, and ways of life. Fragments of memories and dreams belonging to the inhabitants of the previous era still linger in this new world, hovering over certain locations. A futuristic world, that feels familiar, yet strange: an eternal twilight of dreamlike metaphors and shape-shifting beings. Environmental living conditions have radically changed and the search for green plants has become crucial for survival. The outside air is toxic: not immediately lethal, but requiring special gear and treatment after exposure…
Lucid Peninsula is sketched, developed and implemented in close cooperation with Madeira Interactive Technology Institute (PT), FoAM (BE) and AltArt (RO) as part of Future Fabulators, an EU-funded project that aims to explore and prototype possible futures within a cultural framework.
