The Golden Age: Somewhere by Paul Nicholls

In this movie by Paul Nicholls of architectural animation studio Factory Fifteen, the world is conceptualised as a series of virtual interfaces, where people visit places and meet each other without leaving the room. Going to a party? You'll need the IP address. Want to go to the park? Just download a template and build it.

Called Somewhere, the film is the follow-up to Nicholls' award-winning movie The Simulation. You can see all the movies we've featured by Factory Fifteen here. More »

Both topics are discussed in the OMA/Progress exhibition which opened at Barbican Art Gallery in London last week.
