Metroscope2000® is a project in progress that puts my work in a transmedia state; utilizing several layers of media to create a believable realm for this impossible telescope to exist.
The telescope itself is a prototype of an omniscient telescope, one that penetrates time and space to bring the user relevant viewing material.
The project has different points of access to maximize usership: websites, users manuals, print material, physical products, videos, etc. They will all tell the story of this unique device and further embed its reality via virtual reality.
Several versions of Metroscope2000® exist, such as Retroscope2000®, Metroscope2000® Kids!, Metroscope2000® Boutique, and Metroscope2000® Deepfield.
This work in progress began in December 2017, and has a projected range of completion into 2020. It will exist in my fictional company Republitex™, and build upon my growing realm of alternate realities. It is an integral component to my art story and touches on anxieties associated with the commodification of art.
