Other | Memento Mori: An Interactive Installation


Larger than life skeletons transform the visitors to the venue through augmented reality in this an interactive installation by Gabe BC. Gabe BC (Gabriel Barcia-Colombo) is a mixed media artist whose work focuses on collections, memorialization and the act of leaving one's digital imprint for the next generation. His work takes the form of video sculptures, immersive performances, augmented reality, large scale projections and vending machines. His work plays upon this modern exigency in our culture to chronicle, preserve and wax nostalgic, an idea which Barcia-Colombo renders visually by "collecting" human portraits on video.

Tour | Norway: The Legends, Ghosts and Witches of Bergen (online, livestream)


While Bergen today is a modern, progressive and safe city, in the 1500s and 1600s it was regarded as one of the most dangerous places in Scandinavia, with a murder rate comparable to that of New York City during prohibition. As various merchants were coming into Bergen after months alone at sea, they would drink lots of alcohol, fight over women, and often get into trouble. Also, during this time there were some of the largest witch trials in Scandinavia. This was all in an area that's now regarded as one of the nicest places to live! Join Emma on a tour to the dark side of Bergen: prostitution, witchcraft, murder and more. Not suitable for children.
