Styles and Customs of the 2020's

In this Virtual Reality (VR) experience, artists invite us to consider how a re-imagined future can shed light on our present moment.

This newly commissioned work, built by Scatter, and based on a creative brief by DIS, presents a digital dystopia inflected by rapid climate change, social unrest, and shifting global economics. Inside the VR environment, users will be transported to an ancient cave, animated by the flickering light of an age-old fire. Slowly, the cave begins to dissolve, revealing one of four scenarios from the 2020s. Over the course of 3-4 minutes, users are transported forward in time, to scenes in which humanity itself is in a state of dissolution. Space-steading billionaires, sound-canceling isolation bubbles, water crises, and killer drones clad in artisanal Tuscan leather—these scenes are all science fiction. But, like the best science fiction, they tell us more about the present than the future.
