The XR installation GNOTHI SEAUTON (Know thyself) is a sensual impression of our digital self-image. It raises Questions on boundaries between our perception of digital and real space and our consciousness in the Big Data Era. The collective strives for a closer dialogue between different disciplines while applying artistic, scientific and design-based approaches.
