This large scale video mapping installation took place in an abandoned neo-gothic church in Brooklyn. The content questions the rapid parade of simulations making up our post-modern human experience. Like a map with no territory, these simulations hint at the existence of a hyper-reality, while quite possibly the true essence of reality becomes increasingly hermetic, crumbling and decaying from disuse.
Now that the simulation proceeds the original, is the modern experience of beauty, divinity and love merely alienating us from the true essence of these experiences?
"Simulacra" was created by Ryan Uzilevsky and produced by Light Harvest Studio and Bobby Redd. The work features sound design by Brandon Wolcott and Sky White Tiger. Animation by Whitney Alexander, and 3D camera by Kevin Bleach.
Additional consulting by Christopher Pugliese.
