The Unforeseen

FILE Sao Paulo 2022 | Videoart
Electronic Language International Festival

The film follows an unknown woman (Erika Larsson) wondering the street of an empty city. She moves within a space which looks familiar, yet, other than herself’s, no apparent movement can be perceived. Are they real or simulated experiences? The film explores the so called simulation hypothesis or simulation theory, which proposes that all of reality is in fact an artificial simulation, most likely a computer simulation.
