“Hyper fountain”, an installation based on virtual reality, takes centre stage at the initial Lab project. Using VR goggles, visitors can immerse themselves in a world of hyper-reality, where they experience space, matter and in particular the element of water, in an unprecedented way. Something that in reality is a makeshift structure consisting of a simple plastic bucket and a hose, appears in the virtual world as futuristic and polished computer-generated scenery. The bucket is transformed into a marble basin, the hose into a Dornbracht Supernova fitting. A radical contrast that leaves you in no doubt about the oscillation between the virtual world and the real world.
