City is no Longer Safe, The

by Butler, John

Video 1994


The Butler Brothers parody the utopian vision of home shopping and entertainment on the digital superhighways of the 21st century. From city to suburb to cyburb, The City Is No Longer Safe questions the suggested potential for virtual reality as the final retreat from the material world. Satirical cartoon capers meet overstated 3-D computer graphics to create bunnies trying to survive in a consumer cyberworld. Instead of a bright future of freely available information, the Butlers suggest that the prospect for cyberspace is a dark mirror of the society it wishes to supercede.
