LIFE LESSONS > Interactive video project for the 'Utopia Month',
Flux Factory Contemporary Art Center, New York City.
Paul Elie, Kongo / Belgium
What does a Utopian society look like? Is it an impossible reality? A daydream? An achievable reality? Or a matter of personal perception? The challenge to work with these questions and concepts came from the exhibition center for contemporary art 'Flux Factory' in New York City.
For this project, Maureen Bachaus decided to explore whether or not it is possible to build up a virtual Utopia, based on the personal perception of people from different cultures with different backgrounds.
Life lessons' - interactive video project
This video project consists of short interviews in which people respond to the same question. In this case: what is your most important life lesson? Say you could carry a life lesson to a totally new and blank world, what would it be? The entire project is published on: www.bachaus.wix.com/utopia
