When you work with the technique of the “future” and dive into VR, there is a desire to bring the viewer into the world of magic, fantasy, unreality. I want to look a little in the future together. Spaces are now filled with various symbols and signs,

Objects in AR can be viewed through the downloaded application, in the Gorky Park (fountain) in Kharkiv. Ukraine

Artificial intelligence recreates an environment around itself, namely by biomimetic means.
We want to show how the future can be near, to show its consequences. We note that artificial intelligence can take an integral part of our lives. All the video was filmed as if from the first person, while working on the montage of the video, we said “he is flying”, “he is running” but did not realize who it is. At the end it dawned on us that “he” is a virus that is trying to get into the matrix and take possession of it. But in the end the virus dies …
