Posteden: From Hominization to Posthumanism, 2023
VR experience for Oculus Quest
Posteden, follows the story of 3 characters from 3 different historical periods - hominization, humanism and posthumanism. The apple emerges as a symbolic element of desire within Western culture and is the main axis that intertwines the stories and reflects upon the different modes by which human beings are made subjects. The project approaches the apple, by analyzing its symbiosis with other agents in historical, contemporary, and speculative contexts. As well as the instances in which these symbiotic systems are inserted into the social imaginaries in a symbolic way.
