Step away from the frenzy of daily life and take a moment to slow down, look inwards and reflect.
This VR show encourages you to embrace the childish curiosity within and awaken your senses to the wonders of the world around you. Move through colourful clouds, sun soaked forests and mirrored cities to expand the mind and push your understanding of what it means to be truly real.
ACT 1: The Real Thing
The Real Thing is a VR journey into a copy of our world. Around China’s largest cities, entire neighbourhoods have been inspired by foreign models. The film explores the most stunning of these “fake cities”, travelling from Paris to London and Venice - without ever leaving China. The inhabitants guide us in the parallel world where they have chosen to live. As VR leads the way to virtual tourism, copycat cities compete to offer a real experience of static travel. Walking the thin line between reality and virtuality, this documentary combines both to enhance a whole new feeling of ubiquity.

ACT 2: Conscious Existence
An amazing abstract journey exploring the meaning and beauty of life itself.
“We are gifted every moment with life’s most precious achievement: a conscious mind, enabling us to sense and hold within, the universe's boundless beauty - a source of infinite inspiration that fuels our inner space. Being aware of and grateful for the invaluable fortune of a conscious existence is vital for a life in harmony and enables us to use our precious gift within to sense that beauty in every little thing.” (Marc Zimmerman, creator of Conscious Existence).
