The Club launched in October 2023 with discussions and interactive demonstrations led by Charles Ayats, designer and mixed reality expert. The participants had the opportunity to explore the world of XR and a selection of interactive and contemplative experiences. The event also entailed a session for professionals with presentations of XR projects, and a moment for all with a selection of fun games and artistic experiences, where participants could discover how virtual reality and augmented reality have transformed the way we create, learn and play.

As a first result of the work realised by the attendees of the Club and the team of Chroniques, the “VRille – An Invitation to Spiral” exhibition was presented from 13 December 2023 to 31 January 2024 at La Friche Belle de Mai in Marseille, with three virtual reality experiences that transcend the boundaries of reality. 
The experiences take you on a spiral of evolution, transformation and consciousness, where it’s all a question of point of view. Through works in virtual reality, it invites you to plunge into alternative worlds, where reality is distorted and reinvented. A twist, a deformation, a spring that oscillates between reality and virtuality. 

Whether it’s the dissolution of normality in “Marco & Polo”, the infinite evolution of forms in “Encoding Entropia”, or the profound contemplation of existence in “Conscious Existence”, there’s always a break with reality, leading to new and intriguing perspectives. Each work, in its own way, questions the laws that govern this world, be they biological, physical or social. They are like tendrils: piercing, dizzying and uplifting.

Chronique’s aim with this exhibition was to offer a collective experience, navigating between the tangible and the intangible, constantly changing scale and situation, an exploration of virtual horizons.
The Club XR is produced by Chroniques with the support of Realities in Transition, the CNC, and Diversion Cinema
