Mixed Reality performative interventions in public space and documentary film shooting
Guest project in FMR 21- Art in digital contexts and public space   

DARV_Steps Untold is a series of Mixed Reality performative interventions on steps and stairways in the public space of Linz. The project addresses the social pressure for optimisation and constant (self-) improvement, the continuous (re-) positioning and integration in new contexts.   The DARV core team creates a conceptual and media framework in which choreographers and sound artists work together with non-professional performers from different cultural and social backgrounds. They present two site-specific performative interventions accompanied by soundscapes, involving real and digital performers. All the elements interact through an Augmented Reality application.  
In the two projects, Treasures and (Not) Here (Not) There, different levels of reality are intertwined with the use of AR technology, exposing also personal, intimate realities of the participants. These performances reveal their way of living and working, their perspectives on language and culture, the awareness of their own diversity.
