THE NOVELS OF ELSGUER
The Novels of Elsguer is a series of transdisciplinary productions developed in collaboration with digital artist Santiago Tavera. This body of work examines the notions of representation, belonging and displacement through the creation of interactive and immersive digital environments, nonlinear storytelling, experimental soundscapes, textile sculptures and performance. Each installation of this body of work is referred to as an “episode”. Every “episode” is a different exploration of material and corporeal mediums, technological setups, and inquiries about experiences of dislocation.
EPISODE 3: Live Despecho (2018)
This piece is a Virtual Reality (VR) immersive and interactive installation that reflects on how migrant bodies and their multiple representations yearn to belong. The combination of a VR experience, immersive digital animations and live performances offers a space of constant translation between physical and virtual experiences for the body.

Live performance by Phoebe Yì Líng Chang and Francisco Gonzalez.
