AUGMENTED CITY – Norbert Delman – Exhibition

Norbert Delman

You are cordially invited to the exhibition opening “Augmented City” by Norbert Delman on 10.11 (Thursday) at 7pm.

What is Augmented City?

Augmented city” is an exhibition of the Polish Artist Norbert Delman, organized by Berlinerpool arts network and Fundacja Badań Przestrzeni Publicznej TU. It is the final project of the bilateral residential program WRSW|BRLN 2016.

The exhibition is a guided tour through Warsaw based on physical run through virtual reality mediated by projected recordings. The key element is the dynamic form of depicting the city from first person perspective. The artist moves on a track connected to a computer mouse’s scroll.

Depending on the speed of the run, the presentation will get a different pace. The artist controls the intensity of sightseeing: he can speed up the tempo, slow down or stop it to take a breath. It shows the connection between body and virtual reality. Apart from the bodily effort, Delman is also constantly responding to projected topography of the city, which can demand strong and more direct or distant reaction from the public.

The tour takes around 30 minutes. During this time Delman will show Warsaw only from his personal point of view, since he chooses subjectively meaningful elements of the composition. It is the point of view of a  person born in Warsaw. The personal perspective recalls his childhood, block of flats’ adolescence and functioning in post-communist country after ‘89.

Augmented city is a couple of kilometers of virtual, emotional composition about Warsaw. The exhibition is not  pretending to be a narrative tour. Instead, it is an attempt to show tensions and problems.  that are present in experience of citizens of this city and country.

Where and When?

The event will take place at NON Berlin (Chausseestr. 11 / Entrance Tiekstr.1a, Berlin-Mitte).  Augmented city is on view until 19.11.2016 between 2pm-7pm and the opening event is November, 10th 2016.
