False Mirror, 2018 - (ongoing)

VR experience for Oculus Rift

If future humans (or post-humans) ever live in completely virtual worlds, what would their lives look like? The VR project False Mirror attempts to answer this by simply beginning to construct those worlds. False Mirror is a new and ongoing research project expanding floor after floor to create an infinite virtual city. The result is a unique experience that uses speculative design to imagine possible futures. False Mirror is a vibrant and boundless virtual city that’s continually growing and reshaping itself. This is no faithful representation of an existing place, but it’s also not completely disconnected from our reality. It’s an extension of our own world, in which the virtual sometimes turns out to be material after all.


Duration: Interactive [30 min.] (flexible time frame)
