Artist of the B3 Exhibition ON DESIRE

Coded, 2016

An intimate performance for a single player and a performer that deals with mediated communication. The player is invited to use the computer in order to activate me. He can choose between different actions and get instructions that will tell him what he needs to do in order to start the action he chose. Every action has its own price and the player has to decide if he is willing to play...

Self Study, 2017
With the current wave of Virtual Reality technology making its early steps as a consumer product, media artists Daniel Landau and Maya Magnet set out to explore new ways in which VR will impact our concept of self and self-awareness. What opportunities and challenges does re-embodiment in VR bring to how we perceive ‘self’ in relation to ‚others’? In their new audience participation performance-experiment ‘Self Study #0.2’, Daniel and Maya aim to critically explore VR as a significant and novel component in the history and tradition of the complex relationship between technology and self.
