:REWORLD addresses world-building as a core activity in advanced digital culture—an emerging domain of constructed reality that is starting to face its own sustainability challenges and contradictions. As we move in and out of metaverses under construction, mixed realities (XR) reveal an unparalleled potential to provide critical visualisations of ecosystems outside our bodies and also to map out the emotional and nervous entanglements inside of them. Likewise, :REWORLD examines the urgency of re-materialization.
:REWORLD opens at MEET Digital Culture Center in Milan, an organisation focused on reducing the digital cultural divide and guaranteeing an increasingly active and inclusive participation.
