The project was conceived for a 2-channel S3D installation with 2 opposing screens (ideally 4x3m each and 8 metre distance in between) and surround-speakers. In this set up, the viewer is encouraged to choose between the slightly different versions of the film.

Set up requirements:
A dark room, ideally 8 by 4 metre (27'*13'); 2 screens or walls, highly reflective, approximately 3 by 4 metre (10'*13') / 5 m (200") diagonal; 2 3D-capable FHD projectors, ceiling- or wall-mounted; 2 media-players (FHD/4K), 2 amps, 90W, 2 pairs of loudspeakers, 2 subwoofers; 5 pair of active 3D-glasses [e.g. Optoma ZD301], bench
The panoramic version features the endless search and approach to escape in the labyrinth which leads to the underworld.
The 360° stereoscopic movie is optimised for panoramic environments and also accessible with VR devices such as Oculus Rift or equivalent portable VR device.
Single channel version with Augmented Reality
A version for auto-stereoscopic displays and lenticular prints is currently in development. The additional layer provides insight into the emotions and vital data of the protagonists.
The 2-channel version was for the first time installed as a preliminary set up during the 3D Festival Beyond 2016 at ZKM Karlsruhe
Venomenon will be part of the Cape Town Biennial in April 2017 and exhibited at Gaffa gallery in Sydney from June 22-July 3, 2017
