1984 IS NOW
1984 Is Now (2021) is formed in two spaces: the physical and virtual worlds.
The artist with an old cart goes to the city streets, like a Raree Show (Iranian Shahre-Farang). He gives a ride to people while they watch a 360-degree real-life narrative on a VR headset. Daily life stories of various Tehran locations match another city's atmosphere to create an immersive experience. For example, a part of the VR film happens at a cafe; the cart goes to a cafe to immerse the audience and blur the boundaries of the two cities/worlds.
Simultaneously, Interactive map-based videos on the internet for online audiences.
