Visual Effects Concept Video

"DIGITAL GENOME"

CAVAD  | LOS ANGELES, CA  |  2018

Digital Genome: is a concept video that visually theorizes about the future convergence between augmented reality and data collection. Such technologies, while often useful, blur the physical and the digital, the natural and the artificial and, in the process, both the human body and brain are mined for data. This transaction produces a kind of genome that is the cumulative result of our digitally encoded mental material - a digital archive of human thought and experience. Finally, this archive, or seed, could be transmitted to other worlds beyond our own as a form of communication and possibly biologically re-encoded as a type of rebirth - the digital returns to the physical.
