Peripheries of the Real

This segment puts together video experiments that explore environmental aspects, especially in the context of the growing awareness of irreversible change. Many of these signs remain unattended or even lost to viewers’ due to excessive immersion or inadvertent neglect. The virtual space today extends our awareness into the digital netherworld. Such conditions highlight instances of not only parallel realities but also the surreal, hyperreal or para-real. The pandemic inverted humanity’s sense of security by locking us within our homes and producing an irrational fear of the outside world. We found that absences and presences interchanged their roles in our existences. The videos here attempt to bring us to terms with a sense that the fields of reality that we encounter seem to be bound by a mythical horizon.
