The cozy, domestic world of the U.S. 1950s, with its playful, abstract patterns and comfortable cocktail chairs that evoke a sense of nostalgia ˗ this is the world into which visitors of the installation are introduced. They are invited to simply take a seat and let the space take effect on them, or to go on a discovery tour with the help of augmented reality and explore every object located in the space. In the process, a new perspective becomes visible, in which seemingly harmless patterns mutate into spies and propaganda machines. The background is the perceptual errors of the McCarthy era, which led to a denial of facts and made susceptible to conspiracy theories. A topic that has become relevant again at the time of the pandemic.
Part of the work are five different patterns that function as markers for the app "Artivive". They show the perception deficits with the help of metaphors.
