EURYDIKE questions our patriarchal high-tech society, which still instrumentalizes women as objects of male desires, degrading them - both living and dead – to passive tools that are neither heard nor seen. The Mixed Reality Mystery liberates the female from her shadowy existence through an gameplay between reality and virtuality: With the interactive exploration of a retrofuturistic venue – a silent, voiceless place – is made resound: The unheard receive a voice.

EURYDIKE INFECTED reacts to the pandemic through an interplay of a real 150m² big game location interacting with AR, VR and 3D Sound. With VR goggles and protective suit user immerse deeply into a sensory labyrinth that wants to be unravelled. The apocalyptic sci-fi scenario confronts with silence, slowness, irritation and loss of control as well as the restriction of physical senses with simultaneous virtual expansion: the social state of emergency as a physical-mental borderline experience that mutates into an encounter with one's own reflection and poses questions about perpetrators and victims anew.

Lead by XR pioneer Evelyn Hriberšek, international artists and creatives are collaborating since 2015 to stimulate a broad attention on gender. Its global relevance is confirmed by radicalizations such as #Gamergate and #MeToo. In the wake of the pandemic, the unheard must not be forgotten - especially as outrages have increased in both the real and the digital.

What connects #gamergate, virtuality, the pandemic - and the greek myth of Orfeo and
Eurydice? What responsibility do we have as artists when we use and create with new
technologies? Do we need digital ethics, and if so, what might they look like?
A spontaneous and casual exchange about EURYDIKE INFECTED - Explorer Award Nominee
2021 - and the big issues of our digital time with XR pioneer Evelyn Hriberšek.
