European Media Art Festiaval Osnabrück

Virtual Reality

From FullDome to VR-Video - Cinematic Virtual Reality

Completely submerging in an illusion is an ancient goal of humanity and art. We present a "Best of VR art" short film and art program by students of the HfG (University of Art and Design) and the roots and innovative possibilities of cinematographic VR films and 3D sounds at the "Klostergewölbe" at Kunsthalle Osnabrück.

Experience VR:


Realfilm, David Sarno / 3:42 min / DE / 2007

How To Disappear

Animation, Merlin Flügel / 4:00 min / D / 2011

A hand drawn animation about the inner and the outer, about the unconscious, the felt, the melancholic, the end and the beginning. A hypnotic boat ride without wind.

Fantasy-Kurzfilm, Stefanie Kayß / 5:00 min / DE / 2011

It suddenly starts poring with rain and Marlene sits on top of all that she owns in the middle of a sleeping city. Wet, could and a little afraid, she is confronted with somebody she did not expect.

Blaue Lagune

Realfilm, Marco Russo & Maciej Medrala / 7:26 min / DE / 2015

The loneliness pervades her body. Bittersweet togetherness. Sibling love in the palm sea. There comes a ship from far away. He caresses her young alabasta-butt. Forbidden island, far from Nowhere. Blue lagoon - I had a dream. The two of us at sea.

Das Ende eines langen Tages

Realfilm, Christian Öhl & Philipp Boß / 3:53 min / DE / 2015

If public space sleeps, figures come to life that bring their own rules. Like this night in the train.

Best of VR-Art

Prof. Rotraut Pape, Thomas Bannier, Nikolas Gebbe (HfG Offenbach)

Prof. Rotraut Pape, Thomas Bannier und Nikolas Gebbe of Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach (HfG) present a "Best of VR art" short film and art program by students of the HfG (University of Art and Design) and the roots and innovative possibilities of cinematographic VR films. Six parallel stations focus on the development of expansive, immersive films from the direction of 360° Fulldome films, which has been researched and practically realized at the HfG art academy since 2007. Screened for the first time at the annual Fulldomefestival in Jena since 2007, these works subsequently caused a sensation around the world, highlighting HfG as the nucleus of research on immersion.
