Evelyn Hriberšek (SI)


Evelyn Hriberšek creates new hybrid worlds and immersive experiences by an extraordinary fusion of arts, games and high-tech. Coming from a classical background of theatre direction and scenography, Evelyn works since 2008 with new technologies to develop unique hybrid artistic forms, which deliberately break with conventional genre and audience structures.

The visionary has received multiple awards for her transboundary works at the interface of reality and virtuality. EURYDIKE and O.R.PHEUS - both mixes of Art Installation, Music Theatre and Real Life Game, using AR/VR technologies as well as 3D Spatial Sound - attracted international attention with many nominations and prizes and were honored by the German Federal Government.

Beside her own productions the VR/AR-Pioneer also works as Creative Mind and Consultant for big brands - e.g. Resident Evil 6 and Bioshock Infinite. For the University of Bayreuth she created the new study subject “New Realities – Presentation Forms for the Digital Age” and was therefore appointed as Head of Programm Europe for the International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality.

Hriberšek talks, lectures and writes about artistic and philosophical aspects as well as about ethical and social challenges, chances and risks of virtual future scenarios- among others at conferences and festivals such as SXSW, FMX, AWE Europe - VR + AR Conference and re:publica.
As a futurologist, she believes in an ethical code and responsibility of inventing and using new media and technologies.
