A Sense of Gravity goes in première at STRP Biennale on the 30st of March 2019. This immersive installation offers you the sensational bodily experience of defying gravity.
The project A Sense of Gravity started with Teun asking himself: How can I challenge the logic of gravity, of the bodily perception of gravity, with a machine or installation? Can I expand the boundaries of our everyday perception of gravity? Two years of artistic research into sensory perception, supported by CBK Rotterdam, Mondriaan Fund, TodaysArt Crossing Parallels program, TU Delft and V2, led to a succession of prototypes.
A Sense of Gravity is based on artistic research and interdisciplinary collaborations, blending the boundaries between science, technology, design and visual art
While being immersed in the installation, the viewer experiences a bodily sensation of weightlessness. This experience causes a new perspective and perception of gravity on an individual level. With a Sense of Gravity, Teun Vonk creates awareness of our human sensibility and new perspectives on the relevance of our physical being in the digital culture of the future.
