“Make you need me” is a virtual reality music video for the avant garde pop band “5k HD”. A rocket is transporting you with tons of electronic trash to a Dump in Space. Out of gravity you are floating through scrap like broken TVs, mobiles, toys and other electronic waste. Like an artificial intelligence the devices come to life and play a desperate lovesong for you.
Awarded by "Artist in Residence ORF", "Pixel, Bytes und Film" and the "Content Award Vienna", the VR experience celebrated its premiere as part of "Innovation Bridge Europe" at "SXSW2022".
