Fever is an interactive experience in virtual reality created by Karolina Markiewicz and Pascal Piron as part of the European Month of Photography (EMOP).
FEVER is an experience in virtual reality that is part of the Bodyfiction(s) series.
It thematises the state of high fever in which one can be when sick. Children, but also adults with high fever, may have brief hallucinations - mainly visual and auditory. These hallucinations can also appear in dreams.
The experience refers to this kind of brief hallucinations that imply metaphysically the awareness of one's own body in relation to one's environment as well as in relation to other bodies.
For FEVER, different hands of different bodies were photographed and recreated as 3D models. They form a spectrum that slowly floats around the visitor. Depending on the movements and the speed of the
visitor, the whole spectrum approaches, suspends itself or transforms itself radically.
FEVER has been written and created by Karolina Markiewicz and Pascal Piron (L), in technical collaboration with Fabrizio Palmas, Antoine Thiry and Stefan Laimer (D). The music is composed by Kevin Muhlen (L), in collaboration with Ásta Fanney Sigurdardottir (IS) and Elisabet Johannesdottir (L / IS).
A series of photographs is associated with the experience.
FEVER is supported by Film Fund Luxembourg.
