In our first meetup, we got to know the work of artists working with extended reality technologies as well as powerful VR and AI tools developed by colleagues in Rhein-Main.


Caroline Creutzburg presented „Muskeln mit drei Frauen“, an interactive theater performance where the audience navigates through the animated worlds of three very different women.The piece features unusual interactions with joysticks and sensors. 

Ben Livne Weitzman is one of the founders of WAVA, a Frankfurt-based platform for site-specific virtual art. He presented the recent exhibition DEMO and shared thoughts on virtual interventions, communal platforming, and the augmented space of appearance.

From a design perspective, Bastian Hansl demonstrated different open source tools and frameworks to gain control over generative AI. He shared his own experiences and insight into a commercial use-case. 

NSYNK is a digital design studio, based in Frankfurt, made up of an inquisitive, interdisciplinary and international group of individuals. Their member Alex Henker presented their Mixed Reality project »Hyperslides«, a platform that allows for shared spatial and immersive experiences for remote audiences.
