The term “fake reality” means that the notion of originality is bared under the power of consumerism. The reality of materials becomes diluted since originality is lost. We are not sure where something comes from anymore, and do not pay attention to its origins. Reproduction activities such as mass production replace concepts of originality and reality with hollow, toneless verisimilitude, which is called “fake reality” in my work.
This is a short experimental drama about Nicolas, a young college student who lives with consumerism and pop culture. This video illustrates how our everyday life is uncertain and surrounded by “fake reality”. The story starts in a stinky, dark, underground garbage room in a very modern apartment. There is a broken TV that suddenly turns on and shows Nicolas walking into a class room.
