Paulo J. Futre grew up watching his father, a famous football player at the time, almost constantly on the media. The fact of seeing him every day in real life, but also on TV, press and even videogames, made Paulo question the blurring boundaries between physical and virtual reality from a young age. As an adult, the need to assimilate those experiences led him to the thoughts of Jean Baudrillard. In particular, Baudrillard´s hyperreality made Paulo conceive his work conceptually as videogames where the spectator enters through his reflection, situating metaphorically reality and simulation on the same level.
