VR Artist - Mateo Hernandez
Living in the United States has allowed me to know in depth the social reality of the most developed capitalist country in the world and to get in touch with virtual reality, one of the most important new digital media under development. By understanding that in the past most of the technological advances ended up being used for purposes that did not solve the vital needs of society, it aroused in me the concern for the future use of Virtual Reality for the same objectives. When analyzing important historical events and thoughts of renowned philosophers I was able to understand the causes that generated the misuse of technologies. This leads me to propose a possible solution based on the creation of an artistic Virtual Reality experience that generate powerful emotions related to a political view about where we are going as humanity.
