UNREAL PLOTS

WHAT
‘Unreal Plots’ offers a new form of entertainment that uses the principles of conspiracy to turn everyday trivialities into thrilling tales.

WHY
We all invent stories — temporary realities that we create in our mind when facing uncertainty. This project shows how easily real events can be manipulated and turned into instant fiction via an app.

HOW
The story starts when you scan a photo from her own custom newspaper with your phone: it might be Harvey Weinstein’s bathroom, the Kalimantan Olympic stadium or the United States Congress — emptied of people or personal things. An actor shows up on your screen and the plot thickens. Based on recent headlines, a personal narrative begins to unravel: fake news is written on the spot.

QUOTE
The news is the effect and you are the cause.
