The short film Hyper Reality by Keiichi Matsuda offers a first person view of a an overly saturated augmented and virtual reality experience. It's an insightful perspective on how technology and the Internet envelop our everyday lives at an alarming pace. Matsuda allows us to study an immersive dream world where our physical and virtual realities intertwine in an uncomfortably nearby future. Meanwhile, we are forced to face the controlling hand that we passively allow to walk us through. You can find more information on the project here.
