THE BORN AND THE MADE (2018)

The threat of nuclear war is upon us with the situation between USA and North Korea, space travelling is getting increasingly privatized 

with Elon Musk's mission to colonize Mars and new technology is constantly developing more and more advanced androids. All evidence that Philip K. Dicks 1968 science fiction novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? is starting to become a reality. 

The Born and The Real is an interactive light and sound installation constructed with the aim of creating an engaging experience and

play with our perception of ourselves and reality by raising questions about humanity and its future. The installation is thematically and aesthetically inspired by Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and the 2017 movie Bladerunner 2049 and comments on the current

world situation. 

 

Consisting of two overhead projectors casting respectively red and cyan light, the installation creates different versions of the participants through multiple shadows, resembling a anaglyph 3D image. A artificial speaking voice is triggered in addition to constant music as the participant begins to interact with the installation, intensifying the immersive atmosphere and influencing the participant into the intended realm of mind.
