Fantasies of human-centric sustainable futures defer their visions to a time-to-come. In the meantime we are stuck, near-exhausted, waiting. Our time is a waiting room for this anticipated "cleaner", "greener" future-bound fantasy. An era in-between, condemned as undurable, yet - geological time aside - here to stay within the foreseeable real-time of our human lives. What can we make of a transition that prevails in spite of its inherent contradictions? In a time of looming doom and urgencies, our project serves as a spatialised archive documenting our encounters with realities of waiting.

2021 Artworks of the digital art festival Recto VRso: aWaiting by Anke Schiemann

Anke Schiemann


As a media artist , Anke is interested in exploring new ways of narrative and shape them to immersive, sensory installations. Throughout all her works, animation always serves as a tool to inject a surreal element and bring fine art practice such as drawing and painting into the filmic experience. Her background as a set designer helps her to design the stage for these moments of distorted reality to take place.
