You Are Here
YOU ARE HERE is a new location specific opera by Miika Hyytiäinen and Jaakko Nousiainen. The work creates an abstraction of ‘the opera house’ by connecting interior spaces in the Glyndebourne opera house to exterior spaces in front of the three opera houses in Berlin.
YOU ARE HERE will be encountered in form of framed QR code ’artworks’ that can be activated with a smartphone camera. Each code will connect to a short opera video, forming a virtual peephole between Glyndebourne and Berlin.
The work has been selected to be part of the Opera and the Media of the Future conference, arranged by The Centre for Research in Opera and Music Theatre at the University of Sussex in collaboration with Glyndebourne Opera on October 24-26 2014.
