For iTernity is an audiovisual installation based on the famous ballet solo The Dying Swan. But there is no physical dancer anymore. This swan is uploaded into the ‘cloud’, where she is everywhere at once and for ever. Can you catch the dance of the eternal dying swan? Try to follow her and maybe you‘ll start to dance with her. For iTernity is inspired by the virtual world. Our data is  omnipresenton the internet and our profile photos never grow old. Maybe we could even say, we have finally become immortal. But we’ll always need a screen to intermediate between these physical and digital realities. While one person can only see a fragment of reality, together we might be able to see the bigger picture.
