Presentation Title:

  • Real Artificial Worlds: The Perversion of Perception




  • The hyperreal simulacra of the robot world goes beyond the simulation of life on a computer screen. Robots are not only virtual models but also dynamic and evolving phenomena embodied in matter. Real Artificial Worlds incarnates fictitious habitats composed of machines and their immaterial and expressive extensions. These invented ecosystems evolve around the viewers, constantly creating new virtual architectures within a fixed physical space. Real Artificial Worlds engenders a paradox of simultaneous illusion and reality by a complete immersion of the viewer in a metaphorical but physically responsive environment.
