CTM Cyberia throws festival goers into a landscape of Transformation. Explore a range of digital artworks hidden throughout a disorienting environment of mercurial visuals and erratic sounds.
CTM Cyberia invites visitors to explore the space as scrambled unstable avatars, watch select archived performances from CTM 2021's stream programme, and interact with each other via chat, movements, and throwing emoji bombs. Different aesthetics and sound environments can be found in Cyberia’s multiple rooms, psychedelic corridors, and outdoor spaces designed by Lucas Gutierrez in a search for the imaginative, expansive, and permeable possibilities of online spaces. Elvin Brandhi’s visceral sound design plays with the physical gap between user and avatar, evoking organic, human, and humanoid echoes. Avatars wander in search of portals that grant access to a range of digital artworks, including several new commissioned works, hidden throughout Cyberia’s experimental playground. They reflect on Transformation from social and personal, to aesthetic and technological ways.
