Democratopia – somewhere between dystopia and utopia, the concept of data driven direct democracy in virtual spaces of futuristic city scales. I think beyond the given context of society, and speculate on a future alternative reality that is neither right nor wrong. Within one of the futuristic cities where data-driven democracy prevails, I speculate future public virtual space where people meet to shape how their city/city architecture is developing. Using AI architecture agent and other technologies. I am not trying to predict the future or propose a future scenario, I am just speculating WHAT IF the society where everyone is politically active where people have full inﬂuence on decision-making. Film itself can be a good seed for collective imagination of alternative narratives. Also one of my intentions was to create a vehicle for public debate.Too much of today’s political discourse is focused on small changes to what is, and we seem to be running short on the grand visions.
