“all alone, together” brings two realities, the physical and the virtual, together. In the SCHAURAUM a video installation shows virtual clones of the artist’s 3D-scanned body, constrained in a dense formation resulting from an algorithmic anomaly. Their perpetual torture constantly shifts between ecstasy and anxiety. Additionally, these bodies face a similar fate in a virtual space (Mozilla Hubs), where they can be experienced beyond physical limitations. 

Since the existence of cyberspace, there has been an obsession with redefining the self as well as an anxiety about body and identity boundaries. We are facing a new experience of corporeality and subjectivity, a new artificial flesh and materiality. 

Through these perceptible avatars, the artist proprioceptively renegotiates the fragility of both the physical and the virtual bodies and selves, reflecting on today’s situation in which we might feel all alone, together.

Martina Menegon (Italy, *1988) is an artist working with Interactive and Mixed Reality Art to explore the contemporary self and its synthetic corporeality. Her works experiment with uncanny and grotesque virtual bodies, creating disturbing and disorienting experiences that become perceivable despite the virtual nature. She is teaching at the Transmedia Art department of the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and at the IUAV University of Venice (MA Digital Exhibit, BA Multimedia Arts). She currently lives and works in Vienna, Austria.
