This is an excerpt from my 20 minute experimental performative documentation/animation – Travel Buddy (2017).
Travel Buddy serves as a performative documentation towards a physical journey through time and space using virtual presence and machinima. Each of the scenes shown were appropriated from 3-D google street view interspersed with screenshots of the mobile game Pokemon Go. As technology becomes ubiquitous, innovated, and standardized, this work seeks to contrast between the physicality of analog and the representation of virtual. This work seeks to demonstrate the digitalization of humanity through the use of virtual lenses as it alters our perception.
