The Magic of Projection; Augmentation and Immersion in Media Art- Sophie Ernst
On Wednesday 7 December 2016 at 16.00 visual artist Sophie Ernst will publicly elucidate the artistic work in the exhibition MEMORY: Architecture of Belonging, at the Gallery of the Royal Academy of Art The Hague. Entrance is free.
On Thursday 8 December 2016 at 13.45 Ernst will defend her dissertation in the Senate Chamber of Leiden University.
Ernst researches the notion of reality in projections, making a distinction between immersive or augmenting projections. The immersive screen space constitutes an imaginary realm, while reality exists around it. Augmenting projections take place in space: an image is projected onto a three-dimensional object. In her dissertation, Ernst argues that augmenting projections are persuasive, not because they are materially real, but rather since they make visible what we could imagine as real. This argumentation resonates in her artistic work through which she visualizes personal and ideal notions of 'home' in relation to migration.
