ELIXIR: Digital Immortality
What: ELIXIR Beta Interviews, one-on-one, 20-min Zoom experience
When: Extended now through – June 18, 2021
Who: Free for everyone!
ELIXIR: Digital Immortality, written by Mar Hwa Wei, is an interactive, immersive, multimedia play based on a fictitious AI tech startup. Using neural network technology, Elixir creates digital selves that can live online forever. During this one-one-one 20-min Zoom experience, you’ll meet with Gem, Elixir’s Chief Authenticity Officer, to interview to become a “beta user” for Elixir’s state of the art immortalizing technology.
We have 50 slots available for this one-on-one, 20-min zoom experience.
Warning: ELIXIR is fictitious. We know it will feel real. It’s not!
