an exhibition and on-line game at the Ars Electronica Center in Linz and at the Blast furnace at Esch Belval, connecting Linz and Esch in real time.
During the Ars Electronica Festival visitors in Linz will be transported virtually to Luxembourg to explore the exhibition ANYWHERE by Mary-Audrey Ramirez in Esch-Belval. Through an interactive multimedia experience and real-life online game, the Festival public will be able to discover sections of a retired blast furnace at the site of a former steel plant in Esch and encounter several sculptures by Mary-Audrey Ramirez that have mysteriously landed on the casting floor of the furnace, awaiting their destiny.
The installation and performance can also be experienced in Mozilla Hubs.
