Hey! This was a shitload of fun to make :)

I was thinking about how creepy it would be if in the future, people start neglecting their real bodies to exclusively live in downloaded indistinguishably real simulations. There would be all kinds of interesting philosophical debates to have, and loads of conflicting opinions on the technology. It's an idea I might explore more, especially if people dig it.

Hope you like, please let me know what you think! :)

Prints here!

"people start neglecting their real bodies to exclusively live in downloaded indistinguishably real simulations" Yes, exactly... in Matrix Imagine all people who wanna kill/rob someone for example may live their desire in the virtual reality... no crime anymore... we do not need prisons... or people can be rich, good looking, whatever they wanna be...

We just have to keep it as privacy, otherwise the "Big Brother" might end up controlling your mind... I'am looking forward to it... good picture btw.

FYI your art stimulated a big discussion on the reddit forum for the Oculus Rift virtual reality head mounted display:

Thank you for sharing this thought-provoking work!
