Place Beneath Past, 2017

VR experience for Mobile VR

A digital waterfall, bought for $15 (15,95 €) at the Unity 3D Asset Store is presented as an immersive experience, but is nothing more than an ephemeral simulation of falling water in which the viewer is pushed, abruptly. The happening is narrated by a voice-over – a computer generated voice called Bad Guy iVox, that reads information about the waterfall as well as comments from other buyers, which altogether appears like a capitalistic version of the holodeck from Star Trek.




Jörg Brinkmann is a performance-, video and installation artist who is exploring connections between digital technology, gadgetery and net omnipresence. His works have been presented in several art institutions such as the Louvre in Paris, the Watermill Center in New York, the European Media Arts Festival in Osnabrück, the Antonin Artaud Performance Centre at Brunel University, London, and the Chaos Communication Congress in Hamburg. Since 2017 Brinkmann teaches ‘Critical VR’ at Bauhaus-University Weimar.
