Last year, FACT Magazine and 180 Studios took London by storm through an audio-visual experience dubbed Future Shock, which pitted audiences in an immersive display of projection mapping, AI datasets and electronic music. The title of the show was eerily inspired by American futurologist Alvin Toffler’s 1970s book of the same name, which anticipated the stress and disorientation ushered in by technological age.

While the event itself was reserved for London’s 180 Studios, the experience is now available to enjoy anywhere in the world through a new online presentation. The site is somewhat confusing to use at first, but once you begin clicking on the index towards the top, a drop-down menu will allow access to each of the 16 artworks. Highlights include Japanese artist Ryoichi Kurokawa‘s installation, Subassemblies (2020/2022) — a distorted meditation on the precarious relationship humans have with nature.

Alternatively, Actual ObjectsVicky guides audiences through a vortex-like passageway set with vertical film displays, each of which probes into a mega storm that is projected to hit the U.S. Gulf coast. The installation explores the role that technology plays in mediating humans’ perception and anticipation of daily experiences. With a subtle, but large emphasis on Web 3, the installation questions the implications of the burgeoning metaverse and the socio-political ramifications that will result in the years ahead.

For those looking to fall down the rabbit hole, check out Future Shock in its entirety online.
