Each episode focuses on a specific cultural practice, such as video games, virtual reality, social media, or series, and shows how, increasingly, they influence our life experiences. Combining the follow-up of users, interviews with experts, archive and documentary images and visiting spaces or events where fiction is the main character, we dynamically and experientially explore the effect of each technology.
It is conceived as a transmedia and multiformat project with the television program as the central element of the production. Likewise, it has other types of audiovisual formats that complement and extend the project’s universe: social networks’ content and podcasts.
