vapor wave pool, 2023
sound piece


"14.1.2023 Hypertext Hotel Closing from 4pm to 8pm with VaporWavePool Sound Session between 6pm and 7pm. During the sound session, Peter Lemmens will create a live soundtrack for the exhibition, oscillating somewhere between vaporwave tunes, hotel muzak, and a film score. Hypertext Hotel is a network of rooms and passages, a collective endeavour, a co-authored text, an appropriated myth, a place of secrets and transgressions, a narrative structure, a mood, a premise for an exhibition. The project borrows its title from a virtual space for collaborative writing set up by Robert Coover in 1991 for his workshop at Brown University, and it takes the then-emerging genre of ‘hypertext fiction’ – one of the earliest examples of electronic literature – as a starting point to think of an exhibition as a collective work of interactive fiction, where different scenarios and readings are not only permissible but inevitable.
