C.A.P.E.

An individual, immersive experience that uses the latest technologies to transport its users to a virtual mix between Shanghai and Brussels.

CREW is a company that operates on the border between art and science, between performance art and new technology.

Artist Eric Joris develops his live-art projects, hybrid performances with electronic and digital media at their core, in close collaboration with a collective of artists and scientists. Their project C.A.P.E. (Cave Automatic Personal Environment) shifts the user’s presence from one place to another in no time. Users are hoisted into individual, state-of-the-art immersive tech-suits, combining headphones, video glasses, a light shielding mask, tracker, camera, backpack, and laptop. Helped along by a virtual guide, they step into another body and walk around in a far away city or a far away time. The C.A.P.E. that is being showcased at the Brakke Grond during IDFA was first presented at the World Expo in Shanghai in September 2010, and will transport users to a fictitious city, a mix between Shanghai and CREW’s hometown of Brussels. In this way, they can experience for themselves what the future of cinema might be like.
