NEUTRINOS3 - Lichtfestival Gent 2011
"Who is the third who walks always beside you? When I count, there are only you and I together But when I look ahead up the white road There is always another one walking beside you."
Inspired by this short quote from The Waste Land by T.S. Eliot, head of research on theVirtualBody project, Peter Missotten wants to make the “third” tangible again.
Opening at the LICHTFESTIVAL GENT
during the weekend of january 27- 29, 2011, this installation (among others) attracted a huge crowd of over 60.000 people. Lots of them wondering at how these performers could stand the freezing cold on their glass plate. It's just amazing how bad we are as spectators, at unravelling the difference between the real and the prosthesis. Nature just didn't provide that talent. This could prove to become a fundamental flaw in our own design.
