Genesis is narrated by two characters, human idol Yasmine and virtual idol Yasmine. Multiple storylines and audio-visual discourses, alluding to Italo Calvino’s narrative methods, converge on the physicality-virtuality dichotomy. How do we justify innocence and fragility in the social media milieu? Is it even possible to pursue unmediated and non-capitalized love? What could the two characters talk about?
