Be Arielle F

The Théâtre de Vidy from Lausanne is coming to the Schiffbau with selected productions

Simon Senn, a videographer and visual artist from Geneva, purchased the digital copy of a female body online, then embarked on a quest to meet the woman whose body he would go on to inhabit thanks to virtual reality. In this digital conference that doubles as a demonstration and a confession, Simon Senn demonstrates how the virtual world and the real world are not always in opposition, revealing the unexpected entanglements between technology, representation, gender, and law.
