Is reality obsolete? From low-tech functions like body piercing and artificially-stocked fishing pools to the latest in bionics and VR gaming, Iara Lee's cyber-age intellectual survey—call it a *.DOCumentary—downloads a future choc-full of data and defines the parameters of advanced technologies that delete nature and reprogram mankind. Cryonics defy death. The Internet exists outside time and space. Smart drugs and surgery upgrade the mind and body. But are we headed toward human optimization or system crash? Timothy Leary, RU Sirius, Lisa Palac, John Barlow, and others offer sound bites set against a mesmerizing screen display of cutting edge computer graphics and archival clips. Exhilarating and disturbing, "Synthetic Pleasures" raises issues nobody today can afford to abort/retry/ignore.
