Time Bomb the Love, 2019

VR experience for WebVR (Mozilla Hubs)

I re-designed TIME BOMB THE LOVE as a VR revival of the hypnotic animation I created in 1998: “Time Bomb the Love”. The original animation (sneak peek on my You Tube) is a digital manipulation of rockets to the rhythm of techno music. Frame by frame, the missiles turn into synthetic architectures she named “compressions-containers”. Through Vertical-horizontal movements, rockets disappear in straight lines and points, reappearing under the guise of defused bombs transformed into architectures. "Time Bomb the Love" or better: it is time for love to explode! In the VR artwork I made five compressed architectures in which you are welcome to enter by immersing yourself into five 360° abstract animations.

Since 1997, Passa has worked in virtual and augmented reality to explore architecture as an interface. Her work challenges the static nature of architectural structures across immersive digital platforms, exploring the duality between tangible and virtual space. Recent exhibitions include Object Oriented Space, Museum of Contemporary Art MLAC, Rome (2019); Virtual Natives – Sculpture, Roehrs & Boetsch Gallery, Zurich (2019); inSonic, ZKM | Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe (2017); and Dimensioning – Live Architectures, Furtherfield Gallery, London (2016).
