Reality Overloading: New Forms of Virtual Existence
JULY 2021 | Terraforma Journal
Developed as a visual essay for the text titled “Squatting the Digital: Beyond Tech Bros” written and curated by 2050+ for Terraforma Journal Issue #1, Reality Overloading is a collective virtual space developed through the use of game engine software, digital collage and photogrammetry. The image is composed of deconstructed digital elements of XA projects that explore the role of hacking in both physical and virtual spaces, from an Augmented Nail Salon to a Data Deli to Milton Keynes Shopping Centre. The space can be experienced in 3D as an immersive environment and collective story, that we expect to grow and evolve with our practice.
