The Passions of Utopia is a collaborative artistic research project exploring futuremaking and storytelling through the lens of a 360-camera and telenovela tropes.
By using the cynical, plastical and exaggerated form of the telenovela we are trying to explore themes such as future, desire and truth.
Part of the process led to a 20 minutes VR-experience where the audience can take part in a immersive telenovela. It was also showed at ETC Solpark as a part of the interdisciplinary exposition and publication Awesome Arrarat
Throguh a web of different methods, where classic film production work flows and 360-action camera filmmaking is weaved together with site specific installations, we also want to explore narratives that contribute to fiction storytelling through VR in a playful way
The team consists of Yasmin Van Dorp, Nicia Fernández and Johannes Rydinger, students at the masterprogram The Art of Impact at Stockholm University of the Arts
