Collateral Rooms is an immersive live-art installation developed by CREW for the Frankfurter Buchmesse 2016, the most renowned book/creative design fair in the world. The installation allows people to experience 3D vision through a SINGLE eye and the moving of your body. Different from computer CAVES we know, the 3D here is not conveyed by stereoscopic glasses or 3D projections. Nothing of that kind. Only the naked single eye, in movement. That is sufficient to recreate the world as we know it. Collateral Rooms was commissioned by the Flemish Literature Fund (BE).
