As an experimental company CREW aims to visualize how technology is changing us. The art form that is used for this purpose and that quite simply engages the body of the spectator, is immersion. There are multiple ways of sharing immersive environments with the public but the main critera is for the art form to be live: theatre, installations and performances. These real-time creations anchor the immersive experience in the here and now. In the here and now the sole contact point between humans and technology. In the here and now CREW confronts a wide and international audience personally and bodily with that which surrounds us, our place in it and the way we perceive ourselves.

Scientific Fiction is the best description of Eric Joris’ way of working with an international network of artists and scientists. Where the well-known Science Fiction is a genre that typically paints a fantastic future, Scientific Fiction is CREW’s method of providing a glimpse of the future by questioning new digital possibilities and putting them to use in an alternative way.

News: Straptrack

'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.
