VIRTUAL GAP YEAR

A short, experimental film exploring the post-technological future(s) of the Internet.

In collaboration with the alternative think-tank and consultancy agency IAM, the Pitch crew and a team of global collaborators created an experimental short film exploring the IAM Weekend 19 theme: The Quantumness of Archipelagos.

We were drawn by the idea the gap year trend evolved in the 60's, created from a need to "create cross-cultural understanding and prevent future wars" (to quote Wikipedia). We liked layering this narrative on top of the multiple 'truths and futures' explored both at #IAMW19 and through each artists' imagined island.

Virtual Gap Year was premiered at IAM Weekend 19 in Barcelona, Spain and screened at Semi Permanent 2019 in Sydney, Australia.
