68th Frankfurter Buchmesse

The 68th Frankfurter Buchmesse is the most renowned book‐creative design fair in the world and takes place 19th– 23rd October 2016 in Frankfurt.
Collateral Rooms is an interactive live-art installation, a virtual pavilion for the main exhibition hall. Inspired by the floor plan of the Barcelona Pavilion of Mies van der Rohe, 1929, the futuristic set-up consists of simple walls, channeling a 3D real time architectural space that plays with virtual transparency, mirrors, axis, sight lines and real time composited, material textures. The illusory indoor and outdoor views contain sea views, indoor columns, material of glass, steel and extravagant marble, all adapted to the perspective of the viewer.

C.a.p.e. Drop_Dog is a virtuality performance, inspired by two texts of Dutch writer Tonnus Oosterhoff.
Using state-of-the-art technology, C.a.p.e. Drop_Dog teleports the visitor to the stage and into the core of two short stories. No longer sitting and reading in a comfy seat, the visitor is 'immersed' in a 360° story that develops whilst moving. This continuous process of looking, reading, listening and moving produces a complex reading experience and a pleasantly uncomfortable feeling of being in two different, but parallel, worlds at once.

Collateral Rooms and C.a.p.e. Drop_Dog are at Frankfurter Buchmesse 2016 from 17-23 October 2016, Frankfurt.
