“Geheimnis” /ɡəˈhaɪmnɪs/ relates to our personal and secret sense-making of our reality. It is the exciting and magical discovery of aspects of connections and relationships to our environment. It is the pocket of security and wisdom that we share to strengthen bonds with friends. Geheimnis discusses our sense-making in virtuality, a place where we can share our magical and secret discoveries. A journey that will take us through Art, Technology, and Society. These demystify the intangible, notions of authenticity, the sensory and the sacred to lift the secret of how virtuality intersects with our reality which is both a unique and continuing realm.
