As her demo for the IX “Embodied Spaces” Symposium hosted by Montreal’s SAT, Maria Lantin invited participants to perform within a visceral virtual world of visual and audible poetry. As part of the experience, participants were invited to create their own poetic musings and or performative soundscapes via the ability to reconstruct Lantin’s words using loops, layering techniques as well as the ability to visually reconfigure the space. By allowing one-three participants at a time while exploring sentiments of fear, empathy and vulnerability, I Am Afraid enables a sense of play, collectivity and poetic consciousness within its participants
