Would you like to take a walk, using ‘my’ body?

C.A.P.E. (Computer Assisted Personal Environment) is the newest mobile immersive installation of CREW, presented for the first time at the World Expo in Shanghai in September 2010. Come and experience for yourself what the future of cinema might be like! With C.A.P.E., we can shift your presence from one place to another in no time. Thanks to its state-of-the-art immersive technology, you can step into another body and walk around in a maybe far away city or a faraway time...

What if you could physically walk through the past or maybe the future? What if you could walk in a reality that is NOT HERE. What if an artist would transform your reality and put you right in the middle of his art work? C.A.P.E. is a futuristic system, a high-technology configuration and artistic concept that induces exactly this experience, this illusion in your body. CREW has been experimenting with this concept for years and proposes a whole new way to experience a documentary, a visit to the past, a performance, a far-away city....

With C.A.P.E., CREW swaps the familiar inside of the art centre or theatre for the public space, where it aims to trigger the curiosity of many passers-by or accidental visitors and to share with them the excitement of stepping into the future. The creative potential of this new, unexplored medium is immense. Over the next years, CREW will focus on the intensive exploration of this instrument by developing C.A.P.E. applications in the widest possible domains and with a group of European partners. C.A.P.E. is a strongly experience-based medium. It redefines the artistic experience and puts the visitor, who is no longer just an on-looker, into the heart of the experience.
