At last

At last, I can be me!

We are living alone together in the age of acceleration driven by an attention economy that skims the shallows of our limited attention spans. We need a way to decompress. Introducing new decompression software anyone can use to transform their most trivial experiences into vast oceans of meditative contemplation.

Can Augmented Reality (AR), and for that matter, technology, save us from self-disintegration? Can we be ourselves at last, and really share the world community within a mixed reality world? We certainly have fun with our smartphones. It seems that we can’t survive anymore without them. Well…

Jeremy Bailey faz neste video uma introspecção partilhada e uma paródia algo angustiada sobre a função psico-terapêutica potencial, e até transcendental, de alguns apps disponíveis na Net, nomeadamente aqueles que vêm associados à chamada Realidade Aumentada. A função destas aplicações e filtros seria, sugere Bailey, ajudar-nos a superar a tensão da corrida incessante exigida pela chamada economia da atenção. Podemos ver no canal YouTube deste artista canadiano uma espécie de reverso do paradigma de Andy Warhol sobre a fama na ‘sociedade do espectáculo’.
