In the age of academic inflation and devaluation of higher education, Simulacrum explores new ways of knowledge consumption and production. It is a fair of experiences that produces fluid intelligence. There, knowledge turns into a ceaseless landscape of architecture.


Simulacrum replicates real-life and creates imaginary challenges. The learning becomes a game with an individualized script. Each script has its own reality that plays in an adaptable physical space. Inside Simulacrum, the walls rise and fall; the floor changes its topography. The pumps and engines work non-stop adjusting spaces to the imaginary worlds of educational game. The computers process virtual realms. A student travels through the spaces alone but their path intersects with those of others creating common ground for collaboration. The end of the final challenge means two things: the student failed to advance or dived into the eternal knowledge that can elevate them over competitors in the outside world.
