The Path is a full CGI short film rendered in Unreal Engine, about an infrastructure for sensation on the ruins of the metaverse. We follow 3 intellectuals who are stuck in the emotional mine of the "zuckerverse", as they imagine what may come after, romancing ideas of orgasmic pleasures.
The project is a continuation of a manifesto I wrote in 2020, "The Architecture of Pure Emotion in the Post-Digital Era". I directed and designed this film to explore the tactility and emotional charge of virtual space, and to ask: who do we become after the metaverse?
