VR: A Movie
1996, 15:00 minutes, English
VR: A Movie takes up where AMERIKA left off: a compilation (stock footage from 20 features which deal with 'virtual reality' and the like) videotape on the subject of VR 'myths', narcissism, power-tripping, and the collective fascination that Hollywood film has with its own techno-dick.
This piece was created as a 'meta-critical virus' - which seduces the viewer into a participation of re-creating the 'subject' of virtual reality (the active participant of simulation and manipulation). The requisite purchase agreement is that once this video is obtained and viewed, it must be copied, added to, and re-distributed (on the net, or elsewhere).
This piece has something for 'everybody' -- including those transcendental thinkers who believe they are 'geniuses on their own holo-deck' (Kalifornia being full of those...), or that they are are "GOD" (in the machine).
