TANGIBLE UTOPIAS is an exploratory VR experience immersing the viewer as a first-person into an Odyssey of potential future city scenarios, inspired by the imagination of children worldwide. The project is a continuation of the transmedia universe entitled Government of Children – a civic imagination-driven transmedia world (3D film, VR, web) that encourages children from all over the world to see themselves as leaders and to design their societal future. We have gathered a total of more than 250 visions that will selectively serve as a script for the current VR universe. Tangible Utopias aims to design a alternative multi-layered futuristic societies. The users can personalize the ever-expanding interactive world and reshape it exponentially depending on their own involvement. At the end of the experience, each user receives his/her own customized tangible utopia both as an artistic souvenir, but also as an awareness tool in order to advocate for more ethical long-term cities.
