Futurist Friday: Hyper-Reality

I’m happy to see that Keiichi Matsuda successfully funded his “Hyper-Reality” film series through a Kickstarter project. It looks like an awesome futurist project.


This series of 5 minute films, set in Medellin, Columbia, will explore how rapid technological transformation can impact a culture. As Keiichi describes it, the films will show “an ambitious new vision of the future; instead of jetpacks, flying cars and robots, think smart cities, super-social media, and ubiquitous augmented reality. It will be a science fiction short for our time; introspective, critical, and beautifully designed.”

Think about the technologies Keiichi depicts, and how they might transform your life, and the work of your museum. And keep an eye out for the full series!
