arcology



'Arcology' was commissioned by Rhizome and co-presented by the New Museum as part of their First Look: VR exhibition. It takes its title from a 1969 book by Paolo Soleri "Arcology – The City in the Image of Man", which proposes a series of revolutionary utopian visions of urban architecture – new communities that are based on organic and biological systems. My interpretation transports the viewer into a dense labyrinth in which inner and outer space become indistinguishable.
