The 360° video ”..And When I woke Up My Eyes Were Dazzles And My Ears Screeches In The Noontide…” critically examines how new technologies exponentially and constantly colonize everyday life. In a world where the human being changes its own social role from civil/citizen to consumer/user, the boundaries are blurring. The populist call of duty is changing in terms of appearance, focusing more on a hyper-normalization of the individual and pushing towards a super-consciousness built from countless clusters of data; all this useful data is collected and stored on devices defined by their controlled evolutionary path.In this reality, new escapist strategies emerge, technologies offer the possibility to run (or rather … look) away from mass taming and to experience a personal space.
