Who decides how the next generation will be in 20 years? Which technologies will be used then? How is our society developing? Which artistic ideas can help us? Innovative ideas, themes and projects can be found at create your world which consists of three parts, the – create your world Festival and Tour, as well as the Prix Ars Electronica, which is a competition for young, forward thinkers.
The Prix winners become part of the create your world festival as well as the Tour. A few years ago, Simon Mück and his crewmembers Xana Bürgel and Adam Baroud participated in the Prix Open Call and stayed involved as young creative makers. This year they took on the challenge of documenting the Festival experience. At “create your world”, visitors can test new technologies, uncommon models for living, or concepts and ideas in open labs. Simon, Xana and Adam translated the open lab experience in a short film with a very special narrative.
With this film Simon and his crew wanted to show their world through the lens of someone with a different generational perspective
By inviting their friend Emily’s grandpa along to the “create your world” festival – a festival for exploration and of course non-formal learning – Simon and his crew wanted to show their world through the lens of someone with a different generational perspective. Emily’s grandpa usually lives in an analogue world. He is stunned when he enters the big festival hall for the first time. Many impressions are overwhelming for him. He encounters his new surroundings in an increasingly closed manner, but this is when he discovers his rescue: a playful crossword that guides and helps him to better understand this new and confusing world.
