Unreal Estate

Lawrence Lek is a London-based artist, filmmaker, and musician. Drawing from a background in architecture and electronic music, he creates fictional versions of real places, reimagined after alternative geopolitical movements and future technological conflicts. His characters are caught between human and machine worlds: digital nomads, AI satellites, and online superstars, all searching for autonomy under alien conditions of existence.

His works include the virtual world Unreal Estate (The Royal Academy is Yours), dystopian Brexit simulator Europa, Mon Amour, conspiracy-theory video essay Sinofuturism (1839-2046 AD), AI-coming of-age story Geomancer, site-specific video game 2065, and VR simulation Nøtel. His CGI feature film AIDOL was presented at the Moscow International Experimental Film Festival, the International Film Festival Rotterdam, and transmediale 2020, Berlin.
