Young Professionals Award of Distinction
Everyone knows it: FOMO—the fear of missing out.
You’re invited somewhere but you don’t really feel like going. You think about it for a while and decide to go anyway, because after all, you don’t want to miss anything. Looking back on it though, you realize that you really wouldn’t have missed much.
/_ holofear allows us to experience this spectacle in a visual manner through an installation that shows a very hyped party that becomes more boring and desolate the closer you get to it. Step by step, the supposedly great party turns out to be rather unspectacular after all. As soon as the viewer moves away, the hologram party heats up again, and with it, the desire to become part of the action—the FOMO—increases. This interaction with the hologram allows us to palpably feel the FOMO.
