ByDesign 2019 – 100 Year Plan by Emotional.Store
$12 General Admission
100 Year Plan is a dystopian response to participating in the producer economy in the age of automation take-over. This live-cinema experience presents a performance of an online video in RL in which two “creatives” risk everything for digital success.
Emotional.Store is the collaborative duo of artists Scotty Wagner and Bailey Hikawa. They create large scale, multimedia projects that explore the newly forming collective consciousness brought about by the union of the physical with the virtual, and the onset of obsolescence. Through comedic storytelling, magical language, and technological seduction, Emotional.Store projects weave audience members through a viscerally weird conversation around the interplay between systems that drive technological progress and the phenomenology of engagement in a digitally and physically hybridized world.
