In this talk I focused on strategies that expand and question the traditional use of the screen and actively incorporate the human body and the physical space. Not only since the renaissance of virtual reality has the rigid format of the screen as a frame been challenged, but also through a long history of artistic inquiries that explored the boundaries between the real and the mediated space. The question we have to ask ourselves is to what extent these expanded spaces create a deeper understanding of reality or completely cut us off via immersive simulations of existence. I showed examples of my own work and also work of students of the newly formed department exMedia at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne to open discussions about the hybrid forms in art, animation and games.
