Autonomous Reality Communities is a live video and sound performance.

It is a visual tone poem using the vocabulary of motion graphics and abstraction to posit that humankind is not the center of universe and that there are other layers of existence.
I draw the title from Gene Youngblood’s essay of the same name, in which he argues for the use of computer generated and modulated moving image art as the basis for forming new ideas and connections. I combine this with the need for empathy with the non-human. The combination of empathy and technology allows us to dismantle dominant, stagnant modes of thinking and assemble new futures.

It can be streamed into a browser or VR space via OBS. Each performance is different and done in realtime.

Video stills are below. Documentation of a past performance can be viewed here:
