I Saw the Future

Witness Arthur C. Clarke’s prophetic 1964 speech – predicting many of the technologies in our lives today – in this experimental VR film.

In 1964, Arthur C. Clarke, the co-writer of Stanley Kubrick’s on 2001: A Space Odyssey, reveals his vision of the future. By revisiting the signal transmitted by the first cathodic images, this VR experimental film literally plunges us into the sound and visual matrix at the heart of this archive. In a dark expanse that could be the cosmos, we hear a voice: that of Clarke, whose face appears in the distance. His features quickly dematerialize into a multitude of shimmering pixels, creating an enveloping and immersive space out of which the thoughts emerge. I Saw the Future allows spectators to submerge themselves in a three-dimensional space echoing the futurist predictions of a visionary and humanist scholar.
