Simulacra for Dummies

Anyone can explain Baudrillard with this move. After the recent passing-away of this philosopher, it seems appropriate to post this movie as an ultimate "Simulacra for Dummies". This movie is quite known and probably already posted on this blog. But just in case, here it is once more: the "Evolution" movie made by Dove. The construction of reality.

I already knew this video... It was a good dove campaign to remind us the illusion where we live in.
I am doing a dissertation this year about the Hiperrealoty in Digital Art.
If anyone knows books, articles, websites, etc, that could help in this matter I would be appreciated.
Thanks, and nice post.

I Love It ... not only does it support and cherish Baudrillard's theories on Hyperreality , but it also says exactly what I have been writing about for the past month.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
