about

“keep in touch” is an uncomfortable Virtual Reality experience, in which the user is surrounded and trapped by a cloud of wet grotesque hands, their fingers floating, bouncing and pointing while being very close, almost suffocating. By moving the head, one can push these hands away for a short while, but they eventually always come back. The user is left helplessly immerse in a reality full of virtual hand-looking creatures that should not be felt, yet are strongly perceivable.

The VR Experience is accompanied by a Virtual and Augmented Reality Sculpture (2021) that originated from the Virtual Reality by freezing a moment in time. Menegon performed a sudden body gesture to interact with the virtual hands while saving one moment of the unpredictable movements.
The resulting installation extends reality in a hybrid format where virtuality and physicality co-exist.
