Artificial Paradise, Inc. is an experimental film anticipating a future where a major corporation has developed a unique software, based on organic virtual reality, which holds all the lost memories of humankind. A user connects to this database of the forgotten bits. Jean Paul Frenay, the belgian maître à penser and director of the film, has a fascinating theory: we are giving away more and more of our ideas, memories and personal data to the digital vault. I personally agree: the internet is evolving towards a gaseous consistence, free from the need of a fixed place. This way, it is replicating the incorporeal quality of the human soul. The artificial, by gradually mimicking the natural, pushes for man-made object to replace man himself.
