Description

Humans are self-reflective agents with the abilities to share knowledge and to cooperate flexibly in large numbers. Belief played an essential role in the development of these skills and effectively helped the homo sapiens to evolve. Not only religious establishments, but economic and political concepts formed our visions through the centuries. Modern lifestyle seems too fast-moving to practice the rituals and tell the old stories inherited from our ancestors. But this does not mean the end of faith. On the contrary, people are more occupied with fabricating new beliefs and updating their mythology than ever before.

What shapes does faith take nowadays? And where to look for the share of religion in modern lifestyle? Glue in Reality observes the state of our time and gives a platform to think about new spirituality. The project embraces current tendencies and desires and synthesizes them into a new stream of mythology.

To create the new archetype of faith, the project combines Augmented Reality (AR), fashion and multimedia-installation and gives a specific impression into the rituals and stories of our daily acting.

Normativ, transformed items and garments are fused in installations which are located in the real space. The visitor can experience different characters by holding the provided tablets on the line pattern on the wall.
