About this concert
Alex Wang and Chill Chill present their cyberoptic visions of modern China. Loosely based on the dystopian illusions of Orwell’s 1984, the duo has created an apocalyptic landscape with game engine environments and avatars to guide the audience through this unreal cityscapes.
Their performance includes contemporary critiques and historical warnings for future civilisations: from autonomous surveillance to artificial agency, the pair presents an alarming forecast for the digital age.
