The performance Extended Reality, coinciding with the installation series #LightHackSculptures, works with the idea of “integration”of bio material in the art work. The masked performer walks with simulated movements of a person in a VR environment, cut off from the real world, as a commentary on the division between experience in VR and real world. MYrvoLD has actively been commenting on the necessity to re-import experiences in virtual worlds into real world aesthetic practice, like in her Centre Pompidou exhibition ART AVATAR 2017.
Extended Reality makes a notion of the “inner eye”, a physical brain function that all humans have; the ability to dream or see images in one`s mind, recent discovery in brain research documents that the visual receptors in the brain from the inner eye, is identical to that of the external eyes.
