„Are you the Media Player Owner?“ or, in other words, who has ownership of this space?
How do we relate to near infinite freedom to create ourselves and the space we are in, within the community?
In a time where many of us are deprived of human contact and control over our environment, „Are you the Media Player Owner?“ proposes an open gathering of people to come together in VR into a temporary autonomous zone where anyone present can terraform by adding and deleting elements in the environment. Users can modify their avatar to one’s liking and experiment with scuba-diving interdimensionality through VR.
Issues of autonomy, sense of community, mutual care all come to life as participants navigate decision making and collectivity giving the tone of the experience.
Will it be full of freedom and catharsis? Will there be issues of control? How does the desire of ownership, of making a mark, express itself in such a situation? „Are you the Media Player Owner?“
Part of the new series Next Waves Theater, hosted by Armen Avanessian & Enemies
