A Taste of Swiss Immersion

Along with swissnex San Francisco, Pro Helvetia, Presence Switzerland, #SwissTouch, DART 17, Engagement Migros, Emmi and Geneva International Film Festival, we are excited to host a special gathering in Austin during SXSW, featuring Swiss AR, VR, and MR demos, plus a musical performance.

  • Apelab will present Ko’Ko’s Curse, an augmented reality interactive story, and Spatial Stories, a full production suite for interactive VR & AR content creation.
  • Imverse will showcase Elastic Time, a mixed reality interactive documentary about space-time, narrated by astronomer Tony Stark (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) that premiered at Sundance 2018.
  • OY, the duo of keyboarder, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Swiss-Ghanaian Joy Frempong and producer-percussionist Lleluja-Ha, will perform their new songs from another world. Surrounded by catchy avant-garde electronica based on a core of vocal loops and pulsing beats, they find themselves dancing to the story of a carefree future on planet “Space Diaspora” where humanity is finally developing the ability to learn from their mistakes.

With food, drinks, and cheese!
