A metaverse is an interconnected network of tridimensional and immersive visual environments, something possible thanks to a convergence of technologies which allows interactions with digital objects and avatars. However, the concept of metaverse goes beyond that, as it is a post-reality universe which expands physical reality and blends it with digital reality.
We need a new understanding of the digital media landscape we are entering. An understanding and a practice to approach critically the new challenges it poses, and to act out its political implications. To understand the relationships between the immersive virtual space and the physical space. It is undeniable that both conform a single "reality", without any break in continuity.
Metaverses are a reality, but a multiple, complex one, and not the ultimate reality. It is up to us to design the digital future we want, and to provide the resources in order to have creative, accessible, sustainable and diverse metaverses.
