Histoire(s) du cinéma: Virtual Reality: Gender Bender
Studio Visit 360
Studio Visit 360, Theo Triantafyllidis’ performance, that can be watched in this 360° studio visit, considers the concept of virtual labor and production in today’s hybrid-reality work environments.
Proposed by Roehrs & Boetsch, Zurich.
In Studio Visit 360 Theo Triantafyllidis embodies an androgynous Ork avatar whose aesthetics are inspired by medieval contraptions, engineering tools, brutalism and gaming culture. With its inconsistent and exaggerated gender-detailed, imaginative and slightly threatening appearance, the Ork challenges expected gender roles in relationship to artistic labor. An experience that is accelerated by the immersive qualities of virtual reality.Nina Roehrs (Roehrs & Boetsch, Zurich)
