Shinpei Takeda: Limit of Your Safe Space

Details

Start:
May 6
End:
September 11

The concept of “safe space” has taken on new importance and meaning as the effects of a global pandemic have influenced the way we interact and keep our distance, both physically and virtually. Throughout the Fall of 2021, Tijuana- and Dusseldorf-based artist guided a series of virtual-reality workshops with five selected participants across the globe who identify as are immigrants and refugees including two United States Armed Forces veterans, as they shared stories about how their physical, social, digital, and psychological spaces have been impacted by their experiences. Participants worked with the artist collaboratively to envision, design, and create an expression of their safe spaces within the virtual environment. In the resulting exhibition, visitors will experience a mixed-reality environment exploring the purpose of safe space, both in our society and in emerging virtual spaces, and the possibilities of virtual space as a tool for finding sanctuary.
