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 an ongoing research project started in 2017, expanding floor after floor to create an infinite virtual city. The result is a unique experience that uses speculative design to imagine a possible future that’s continually growing and reshaping itself.
During this lecture-performance, Ali Eslami, wearing his VR Headset, will login to False Mirror with his virtual identity to explore and breakdown his future life with the audience: surfing through his home, revealing his modular post-human body and revisiting inner spaces in the city.
