Full Moon Exhibitions
The Unreal is a virtual landscape created with the game software “Unreal Engine”. As a conceptual exercise of techno-liberal rhetoric appropriation, The Unreal is a representation of techno-romanticism and colonial ideals.
For the exhibition in Internet Moon Gallery, we present a guided tour to the core of an artificial mine inspired by a meditation guide. Through a metaphorical approach and a recreation of a utopian reality, we simulate a walkable immersive virtual experience. The route, marked by a speculative derive, offers a representation of imaginary of Silicon Valley about the infinite and individual freedom. This online exhibition focuses on a contradictory narrative to exalt the failure of techno-capitalism alternatives and the colonization of all imagined spaces.
