Abstract:

  • This paper, based on research developed by the Laboratory of Front Poetics (research group CNPq/UEMG), seeks to discuss and reflect on the notions of reality and separation through the research and development of a poetic work. The results we present here arise from the context of research, development and innovation in the field of relations between art, science and technology. As a way of finding answers and the possibilities of understanding even multiplying realities, an experiment was developed that sought to obtain a credible prospect in the city of Belo Horizonte (Minas Gerais/Brazil). The existence of an initiative that, at first, would not exist: the artist Froiid, one of the members of the LabFront’s project team, followed and discussed a narrative about the separation of a territory (Minas Gerais) from the rest of Brazil (2015-2018). In this work, we will briefly present what this narrative of emancipation is and we will present the artistic exercise developed by the LabFront that allows seeing through an interactive virtual reality installation in 2018 part of this “unreal/real” construction.
