Simulated life began in the movies and computer games, but is influencing many fields today. In architecture, city planning, traffic navigation, and market and trade predictions, virtual scenarios of human behaviour change the way we live. Clemens von Wedemeyer's film Transformation Scenario creates a speculative narration on the impact of emulated group behaviour in society. The film is part of a long-term project by the artist making reference to the book Mass and Power (1960) by Elias Canetti, shifting the view on images of society, crowd control and the potential and danger of masses today.
