100 Year Plan is a live-cinema experience of a near-future online variety show by two creatives who put everything into a path for digital success.
Set to probe our physically and virtually hybridized minds in the midst of automation takeover, 100 Year Plan combines livestream performance, prerecorded videos, songs, websites and wearables into a humorous take on creative life in the era of accelerated capitalism.
Emotional.Store is the collaborative duo of artists Scotty Wagner and Bailey Hikawa. They create large scale, multimedia projects that explore the newly forming collective consciousness brought about by the union of the physical with the virtual, and the onset of obsolescence. Through comedic storytelling, magical language, and technological seduction, Emotional.store projects weave audience members through a viscerally weird conversation around the interplay between systems that drive technological progress and the phenomenology of engagement in a digitally and physically hybridized world.
