We’ll reschedule this Playgrounds Session. Please keep an eye on our website and socials for a new date.
Daniël Ernst is Gouden Kalf Interactive 2019 winner for his VR experience Die Fernweh Oper.
“Fernweh” means the longing for the distance. Artist Daniël Ernst gives that term a very personal, virtual translation. Die Fernweh Oper explores distances between memories of the past and the present, distances between stars and humans, but also between visitors and the virtual world. The project had its world premiere at the famous SXSW festival in May 2019, and was also shown in Cannes that same month.
Nienke Huitenga is an award-winning independent immersive designer and strategist. In her work she blends media strategy, digital concepts and immersive experiences. She designed media strategies for transmedial stories like Human Birdwings and The Modular Body (directed by Floris Kaayk), which reached an audience of millions. In 2016 The Modular Body was awarded the first ever Gouden Kalf for best interactive work. She is also the director of ROZSYPNE, an interactive roomscale VR-story about an old lady trying to persevere daily life in the Eastern-Ukrainian war-zone, with the MH17-crashing at her doorstep.
Also present during this Playgrounds Session is Eindhoven based studio Enversed, Europe’s largest VR experience center.
