This project was selected by the Light Move Festival and screened from 27 to 29 September 2019 on Łódzki Dom Kultury, the Lodz House of Culture in Poland.
The projection at the beginning explores the progressive saturation of the natural space occupied by anthropic activities.
A wild nature scenario is gradually filled up by buildings, factories, neon banners. The reaction is the escape into a virtual world and the abandonment of an unliveable reality.
The new man, closed in his monadic existence, can now create his own new city in V.R. But also this new space is destined to be filled up with datas and digital contents.
However, we wanted to avoid the abused dystopian approach to V.R. and propose a possible and virtuous contamination between virtual and real based on sharing.
The monad-man will be connected to other virtual creators in order to use the planning resources offered by V.R. to design a new augmented city.
