Artificial Paradise, Inc.

Date: August 16, 2011 Category: 2D/2.5/3D, animation

Today I bring Artificial Paradise, Inc. a surreal abstract take to virtualisation of memories with bio entities accessing and moderating the databse. Well that’s I think it is. The stylistic approach to this video works well with the bio entities existing in a white/clean room and the memories living in a dark open world.

Here’s a grab from the vimeo description

Artificial Paradise, Inc is an experimental film anticipating a future where a major corporation has developed an unique software, based on organic virtual reality, which holds all the lost memories of humankind. A user connects to this database of the forgotten…what is he searching for?
