Screening as part of C/O Digital's New Values inaugural theme, New Design Congress presents a revised edit of The Para Real Episode 4.
At the height of the worst economic crisis in nearly 50 years, an underground creative class was putting the finishing touches on one of the largest showcases of digital assets assembled to date. VIRTUAL MARKET 5 brought together modelers, animators, coders and visual artists from all over the world in a month long international flea market. Over 1000 stalls, all filled with buyable items, attracted an unprecedented patronage - the market saw a staggering 700,000 unique visitors. LilBagel shares his expertise as Virtual Ambassador and how this enormous international event is a model for real material stability for a multi-disciplinary creative class.
