The film is the latest expression of Keiken’s artistic quest to explore technology’s impact on consciousness through gaming, filmmaking, installation, extended reality (XR), performance and more.
Follow Angels Yaxu and Anamt’u’ul as they try to make sense of a rapidly evolving world through post-human eyes and bodies. This inventive computer-generated film from Keiken portrays a future where technology and humans are nearly one and the same, evoking the metaverse and RPG games like Fortnite to digitally carve a snowy, Mars-like cyber world from the innovative digital tools of gaming. Morphogenic Angels is both an existential odyssey and romantic awakening bound to trigger an emotional response.
Tanya Cruz, Hana Omori and Isabel Ramos formed Keiken - an award-winning collaborative artist collective - in 2015, and are increasingly gaining serious international attention. Their name comes from the Japanese word for experience, something that is fundamental for their narrative-led games, installations, animations and sculptural works.
