2097: We Made Ourselves Over



2097: We Made Ourselves Over


2097: We Made Ourselves Over was a science fiction project that took participants on a journey into an imagined future. Blast Theory worked with diverse communities from Hull in the UK and Aarhus in Denmark to develop visions of the world in 2097. Five sci-fi films were shot on location across the two cities, starring a local cast. An interactive app accompanied the films and audiences took part in live immersive experiences in Hull and Aarhus.



Artist Biography


Blast Theory creates interactive art to explore social and political questions, placing audience members at the centre of our work. Led by Matt Adams, Ju Row Farr and Nick Tandavanitj, the group creates interactive art drawing on popular culture, performance, technology and games, the work often blurs the boundaries between the real and the fictional. In virtual and physical spaces from pubs, canals and abandoned warehouses to libraries, museums and apps – we go to unexpected places to make our work accessible to everyone.
