VR, laser-cut Amazon boxes, LED lights, headphones, cable, hardware, zip ties
A VR experience within a sculptural light installation. A hundred laser-cut Amazon boxes and 3 virtual reality stations hang from the ceiling. The installation employs strategies of the spectacle while signalling caution towards the seduction of Big Tech’s services and advanced technologies. The VR environment and narrative derive from the future vision inspiring Blue Origin, Jeff Bezos’ private space program, where human’s outgrow Earth, reside on space stations, and visit our home planet as a tourist destination. In a dystopic twist, Earth is no longer habitable due to capitalism-induced climate change and BEZOZON (Amazon 2.0) controls all means of production and distribution. The VR features a sparse living unit overlooking a burning Earth where one must look up to Alexa for answers.
