Winner of best film on CG architect awards 2011. THE GOLDEN AGE is a film which speculates on a simulated architecture. It is concerned with technology, synthetic programmed spaces, and the temporality of our immediate conceived environment, physical or otherwise. It is part of a wider project which looks at a ‘downloaded’ architecture, radically changing the consumerist lifestyle we are all used to.
Sequel to the award winning GOLDEN AGE – THE SIMULATION, ‘SOMEWHERE’ attempts to visualise the notion of a ‘downloaded architecture’. We are in a time where much of what we do is online. The notion of the online will radically change, the notion of the computer and the home will merge. We will download parks and places to relax, have skype phone calls with simulated telepresence of our friends and family, be immersed in nanorobotic replications of any kind of objects or furnishings downloaded on credit based systems. The local becomes the global and the global becomes the local. Consumer based capitalism would change forever.
A truly ‘glocolised’ world.
