CONCEPT

Project Chromozone is an attempt to exploit the economic trend of data retrieval, spawn questions of its ethicality, and to raise awareness to the change in lifestyle because of it.

NARRATIVE

Swirling around building tops, where the ground plane is no more, exists a new form of human ambition and existence. An existence where citizens are safely sequestered inside cozy cubes that endlessly navigate through buildings. The citizens do not leave their cubes, for everything they need is provided. This is possible through a system which rewards the individual for the collection of their data by negatively reinforcing lack of contribution. If the individual complies and generates substantial output, the data produced is then collected and the cube rolls along. However, if the individual does not produce sufficient output, data cannot be collected, and the cube falls off the track.
