In this speculative fiction, all the world’s photographs have suddenly turned into the objects they represent. The video depicts a vertiginous architecture, so devastating that it created new uncontrollable borders and isolated people. Piles of selfies, cats, and meals are scattered everywhere. Text messages evoke a new society living with limitations and suffering from media saturation, sensory overload, and crushing ecological impact. A world where images have taken over, invading, and transforming space. They become the only reality that is still visible, as the whole world is turning inwards.
