Silva entitled “The Vision Machine.” Funded by the Ford Foundation to help envision the changing landscape of independent mediamaking over the next fifty years, “The Vision Machine” tells a mind-bending sci fi story relevant to anyone interested in the insane potential of personal technology, social media, digital distribution, and virtual life — and the massive challenges of privacy, copyright, and surveillance in the digital era.
