METAGENESIS

Machinima 720p / Duration: 11'18''

What is a virtual world made of? What is its essential substance? Can that ocean of code actually be the support for new forms and expressions of life, perhaps with no physical body, but aware of its own existence? How does the metaverse evolve? Thinking about the metaverse of Second Life implies questioning reality, existence as we understand it. This documentary-machinima captures moments of creation, instants where the original formless digital substance takes a logical and recognizable form, from abstraction to representation, from unknown to known.
