'DYSTOPTIMAL: A brief history of the next century' tells the history of a fictitious century up to the year 2120. Additionally to the text, the reader can use QR-Codes to get immersed into 360-degrees scenes via smart-phone or tablet, diving even deeper into a possible future. 17 Interactive surround-video-links paint stark pictures of a century dominated by the 'Happy-Corporation' and framed by 'Hyper-Consumerism'.
Blurring the boundaries between video-art and literature it is a thought provoking but funny, dark yet hopeful book.
Contributors include The Quiet Now, wohnlabor, Valgeir Siggurdsson, Helgi Jonsson and many others.

This book is based on the Virtual Reality Art-App 'DYSTOPTIMAL'.
