Meine Sprache und ich - Eine Annäherung in Virtual Reality nach dem gleichnamigen Text von Ilse AichingerIn the VR experience "Meine Sprache und ich" (My Language and I), a game for one person at a time, an extraordinary encounter with the textual world of the Austrian author Ilse Aichinger takes place. Her language eludes direct, readerly access, distrusts conformism and comfort, always in search of the concrete sensuality of the word. Concepts, characters, and narratives stand egalitarian to one another - contexts, definitions, and emotions do not emerge as entraining forces. The virtual format promises the opposite: hyper-accessibility, immersion and total spectacle. The experimental project has been dedicated to the contrast of these attitudes for two years. The visitor encounters other beings and structures in a virtual world modeled on the text of the same name. Some speak, help or wait, others only eavesdrop and silently point to the actual field of interest of digital culture - the unscripted, open outcome of human interaction.
