White Condo is a science fiction film that tells the story of Jan attempting to find the right home, and recover feeling in a world of ubiquitous monitoring and mediation.

“There are eyes everywhere. No blind spot left. What shall we dream of when everything becomes visible? We'll dream of being blind.”
― Paul Virilio

In this hyper-real age of simulated imagery and self-curated surveillance, many artists are returning to metaphors of authenticity and duplication to investigate the particular character of this post-millennial moment. Theorists like Virilio have interrogated the ways in which contemporary seeing modifies experience, encouraging the extreme desire for other worlds and, essentially, for disappearance itself. White Condo is my ironic attempt to contribute to this complex terrain, a satiric project for exploring the myriad dysfunctional ways that we humans attempt to ‘master’ ourselves and our increasingly artificial environments.
