A company sets up management sessions using virtual reality. Employees talk their dreams, aspirations and difficulties in a fictitious world. Slowly, the real space merges with the digital environment.
As a fictional work using excerpts from management and personal development books as material, « For all the magic hidden in this world » questions the place of speech and play in the company environment.
Here, the digital world where employees evolve and produce has the same vaporous texture as the real world, placing the viewer in a meditative and reflective state. By re-enacting the new rituals associated with the ideology of cognitive capitalism, this video seeks to reveal its profoundly fantastic dimension – both in its work spaces and in the nature of its language and production.
