NXS#5 Virtual Vertigo examines the challenges of the digital extension of reality and its shadowy underbelly for the self.

Daily digitally mediated interactions have made human perception more and more relative. Engaging with your friend’s avatar lookalike, FaceTime’s video chat applying its attention correction function, or talking on the phone with eerily human sounding virtual assistants literally make our senses deceive us.

Virtual Vertigo investigates questions such as: what emotional effects might a computer-communicated reality precipitate? How is the user’s behavior influenced after returning to the physical world from those layers of lifelike experience? Which ethical pillars should be kept high? And: are we able to restore our understanding of the structure of reality in a new form of find ways to resist manipulation?

Quarantine T–Shirt

Throughout recent months our realities have changed drastically, with the coronavirus taking centre-stage in the quarantine world tour that has so quickly made its way across the globe.

And with every tour comes its accompanying merchandise (even the uncomfortably apocalyptic science-fiction ones). In the hopes of producing something positive from a situation so negative, and of coming together in times that pull us apart, this t-shirt – now available on @everpresshq – was designed in collaboration with Pedro Mata Nogueira 31,00 €.

Available until May 12
