ON THE TRAIL OF HAMLET
"Hamlet GO" 2016
MTO is most often expressed through realism, surrealism and futurism in relation to location specific or political messages.
In his artwork in Helsingør, the digital Yorick scalp fills the vast majority of the work and serves as a direct reference to Pokemon Go 'where players, out in the real world, chase virtual monsters.
The game mixes reality and virtual reality in a way that has not been seen before. The hunt for the city's many works of art brings the viewer past a wealth of aesthetic expressions, to which MTO allows you to capture Yorick on your smartphone as one of many virtual monsters that appear in the real world of the city space.
