NEVER AFK-er AI
Never AFK is a performance that examines the concept of computer game addiction, virtual reality and identity.
By turning upside down on the reality aspect and presenting the virtual world as real and society outside as the artificial, disruptive element, we will take the debate about addiction onto the stage and showcase pages of gaming that are rarely described in public and in the arts. Together with players and experts, through a process-oriented work, we will build a story and character that illuminates what a human goes through, both in the face of the game and with the community outside, when life is largely in a digital existence.
