Base Reality | Jacob Wester

By: Downdays March 12, 2021

Are we living in a simulation? What does that mean exactly? I’m not sure, but it’s a trippy proposition; almost as trippy as this new short by Marcus Rönne featuring the skiing talents of Jacob Wester. Hit play and allow your mind to expand to the endless possibilities, on the slopes and beyond.

Come along on a visual project telling the story of a profound philosophical concept – the simulation hypothesis – through the language of skiing. What defines reality? What does it mean for something to be real? Are there layers to reality, this one being only one of many, on top of the underlaying foundation of the universe – the Base Reality?

Throughout this project, freeskier Jacob Wester and director Marcus Rönne sets out to explore and portray the simulation argument, proposed by physicist Nick Bostrom, by bending the rules of how to film and view skiing. Join us and find out exactly how deep the rabbit hole goes.
