Under [my] control - laboratory

September 4 - September 8
Ars Electronica Festival
Linz, Austria

We're happy to be part of the Under [my] control - laboratory of U19 Festival 2014. Who actually controls the devices that control us? For example, wearables—smart clothing—monitor our bodily functions, give us feedback, and motivate us to optimize performance. Technology accompanies us through everyday life and expands our senses. Does this liberate us or make us dependent? Ars Electronica and Otelo invite us to play a game with personal boundaries of perception, cooperation and control in virtual real space (VRS), a zone in which analog and virtual reality blend.
