The same logic that instigated isolationism and the proliferation of alternative worlds in politics, filter bubbles and echo chambers in interpersonal relations triggered the revival of a technological artifact that externalizes realities of different kinds for the individual.

»Technological materiality«
Known as ‘the reality-producing device’, virtual reality technologies model high-fidelity environments with visual and kinetic feedbacks. Within VR experiences, representational proxies simulate corporeality allowing for actions at a distance without physical compromise.

»Indie as a parasite«
Since all the mayor stakeholders in the technology industry are shapeshifting their services and products to 3D user interfaces, a standalone Web 3.0 is in formation. Considering the heavy computational capacities (ultra-high resolution, render farms, massive processing power) of VR technology, indie content comes forth on the big industrial hardwares „in the night shift”.
