To exist in the virtual world is to have two bodies, four hands, two hearts. In “Shadowtime”, a guide to this double world leads you through questions around the climate crisis, irreconcilable realities, and the virtual as a place to take shelter.
The VR installation is accompanied by the directors' previous short film “Our Ark.” Together, these projects present a diptych of a rapidly changing world: one chronicles the desire to digitally preserve, and the other critiques the allure of the virtual and its impact on our physical realities.
