'STRAPTRACK’, a research project in arts& technology

In Straptrack, an'immersant'strolls through a virtual sculpture (A visitor equipped with video glasses, PC

and headphones).

Meryem Bayram designs and activates the geometric objects of this sculpture, while Eric Joris intervenes

in different combinations with drawings and recordings via so-called Motion Capture.

Straptrack is not only an artistic creation, it is also technologically a new and innovative tracking system

that makes it possible for immersants to travel long distances.

It was developed for this project to do exactly what these two artists are fascinated by: how we ourselves

create spatiality from our own movement.


Do not be seated!


Concept and scenography: Eric Joris, Meryem Bayram, development tracking system: Steven Maessen,Androme& CREW 3D.

recordings and modelling: Arash Hosseini, 3D, Modelling& integration, 360° video recordings: Isjtar

    Hands-On Hamlet: Experience - experiment

    CREW is proud of, and excited by, the recent progress in our long-term pursuit Hands-On Hamlet which addresses key Hamlet-issues on how to be a moral subject and how one is determined by his/her own cutural mind-sets.

    The performative results avoid anything reminiscent of a computergame or film. It is a new visual medium, more spacious, less cinematic and a rich platform for a live Virtual Reality content revolution.

    This progress will be discussed in a panel Hamlet: experience - experiment at the ESRA conference July 29 and a preview of the work-in-progress will be on show July 30 at ShakespeareOFF on Gdansk Shakespeare Festival 2017 .

    2017: a new production: Hands-On Hamlet

    In this era of selfies, camera ubiquity and hyperawareness, CREW wants to explore these issues by breaking open pathways of perception. There is no higher purpose for the live-art of CREW than to create experiences that help viewers think and feel through immersive media that help shape our increasingly, progressively dangerous un-realities.

    In the new production Hands-On Hamlet CREW continues to explore tools to communicate the multiplicity of truth and to activate thinking.

    Summer 2016

    CREW continues working on Collateral Rooms , an interactive live-art installation, developed for Frankfurter Buchmesse 2016. CREW has been invited to create a virtual pavilion for the main exhibition hall. Herefore CREW adopts the floor plan of the Barcelona Pavilion of Mies van der Rohe, 1929. The futuristic set-up will consist of simple walls, channeling a 3D real time architectural space that plays with virtual transparency, mirrors, axis, sight lines and real time composited, material textures. The illusory indoor and outdoor views will contain sea views, indoor colums, material of glass, steel and extravagant marble, etc. all adapted to the perspective of the viewer.

    CREW will try to incorporate all the expertise that has been developed in' viewer dependent images '. This is crucial for experimenting with possible positions of the spectator in order to link them to an 'embodied perspective '. The'motion capture system'and de viewer's free movement can supply infinite viewpoints and extensive visual effects.

    Collateral Rooms is premiering at Frankfurter Buchmesse 2016 from 17-23 October 2016, Frankfurt.
