Sam Lavigne: The Meta Experience

HMKV Video of the Month


01–30 April 2022

“The experience. Experience. Experiences. Metaverse is. Experience. The physical world. Glasses. The future. This future. The future reality. The world. The physical world. The real world. Meta. Company. Commerce. Community. Company. Companies. Companies.”

The short video by Sam Lavigne is a staccato-like montage of word snippets about the "Metaverse." The "Metaverse" is the new big thing of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. It is supposed to be the next level of “social media”, so to speak, and to connect on- and offline worlds in a kind of virtual reality. The video begins with Zuckerberg as the "beat-setter" of the big narrative – in which many other voices then join in. (IA)
