100 is a 6DoF VR interactive installation that allows users to explore the space of New Belgrade on the border of the known. Neon typographic signs, former advertisements of artisans, represent a monument to old elements in a new space. This digital urban landscape of brutalist architecture invites users to intuitively explore the space and question the transformations of the relation between architecture and society.

The story follows the mission of the ship ILINDEN 2.0 and Maya (24), the only person living on the ship. Following a clearly defined trajectory of travel, they encounter a mysterious, luminous celestial body whose light pulsates. Maya’s curiosity is aroused. She sends a report to the Committee, an AGI system guiding the whole mission which prompts her to continue with the travel plan. Maya decides to follow her own instincts, ignoring the Committee’s warnings. She lands at dawn on a surreal planet in the process of dispersion. She discovers concrete megastructures with futuristic shapes. Each of the monuments will reveal, part by part, the story behind the places where Jasenovac, Barutana, Tjentiste and Kozara are located. While interacting with these structures, she experiences visions that reveal to her fragments of human history and the end of civilisation.

In a desolate, post-apocalyptic world, the remnants of humanity persist in the form of avatars. These survivors have not only persisted but have evolved into a new form of existence — a fusion of the digital and the physical. Once mere projections of human consciousness, these digital entities now possess a synthetic body, an intricate blend of code and matter. At the heart of their existence lies the enigmatic bluish light, a marvel of artificial intelligence that not only governs their actions but also serves as a bridge between the digital and physical aspects of their being. This glowing circle as a symbol of a profound connection between the synthetic and the natural, pulsates with the collective consciousness of the avatars, a repository of memories, desires, and the remnants of the old world.
