Worlding Marfa ( intro)

There is a place, near the small town of Marfa in Texas(USA), where a part of the Chihuahua desert flows into the virtual desert of Active Worlds (Active Worlds and one of the oldest active multiverse since 1995). In that same place, the virtual materializes in the real space. The story goes like this: 2 protagonists go to this strange place to cross to the other side.

Their journey starts in Marfa, they slowly slide from the material reality to the virtual world as they get closer to the Mexican border.

Worlding Marfa (intro) is the first part of short film mixing 3D modeling, real world images and Active Worlds.

In this fiction, two protagonists follow the trail of a certain myth that leads them to Marfa. Interface between the material world and the virtual world. The film would follow their journey until their complete digitization in Active Worlds, passing through each step of the collapse of their matter. The weavings in the film become transitional objects between the real world and the virtual world by their computational character. They serve as maps and markers to navigate between these two spaces.
