“The Life & Death of RMB City: The 5th Mayor project”
Through this, endless, perpetual cycle we are thrown into a world, and eventually washed away by its eternal wave. Like water, we splash on the rocks in constantly shifting forms, and like foam we finally dissolve into air.
How many worlds are we expected to see? How many forms to assume? On the rise and fall of a lullaby we choose a tarot card to know our destiny in RMB City. We set out to conquer the space, then in a blink of an eye, the wave rolls back and we are bound to become something different, over and over again.
On the occasion of its 5th Mayor Inauguration, RMB City enters a new phase and begins to embark on its last journey. Guided by its new mayor, Alexandra Munroe (Supernova Sibilant), and in search of its final destiny, RMB City invites you to consult the tarot and face your own fate.
Tracing back the most eminent moments and figures of the city’s journey, we will play our last game and face our final destiny, waiting for a new world to stand out on the horizon.
