without AR.     with AR3


Navid Tschopp’s project interprets “treasure” as a form of community building utilizing digital technology in a time of crisis and progressive individualism. New cultural ‘treasures’ are created by the alternative and creative utilization of digital applications and devices. Tschopp composed a play with his friends from around the world using “Zoom.”  He invited them to create a play of simultaneous choreography using their hands and arms. In gallery mode where all screens are of equal size, their hands and arms form geometrical and ornamental patterns. Using the specially designed AR application for the Festival, visitors can view Tschopp’s choreographed work where the participants’ arms mimic Stalinist architecture on the actual DK Gaza building.
