Present Futures is a Berlin-based media and software development studio founded by Lucas Martinic and Chloé Lee.


“Shared experiences are at the center of our story. An app we built sparked a shared curiosity and desire to connect, bringing us together. In that same spirit, we wonder what shared worlds and experiences others can imagine and build together. What worlds can they imagine into reality?”


Their work aims to inspire creativity and new perspectives, whether it is through their innovative, interactive virtual reality experiences, like Temporal World (SXSW 2023), or their proprietary tools and systems that empower creators at various skill levels to realize their ideas.



As an artist and producer, Chloé’s work uses sound, video, haptic and extended reality technologies to explore where digital and analog worlds meet. Her recent fascination has been with interactive VR experiences and how these spaces can be used to explore memory and how we make meaning. She has BA degrees in Film & Digital Media Studies and Business Management & Economics from UCSC and a Masters of Fine Art in Integrated Media Arts from Hunter College in NYC.

As a 2021-2022 Germany Arts Fulbright Scholar, Chloé created the VR exhibition, Temporal World (SXSW 2023). The project is inspired by her memories as she creates meaning in a place she has no personal history. As an Asian-American artist, she explores themes of migration through discovery, documentation and, eventually, rooting herself in a new place.


She has been a researcher at Matters of Activity, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and has over a decade of experience as a producer of digital and film  content.

Lucas is a programmer, musician and creator. From developing games for his sisters at the age of 9, to touring the world with his music project, Trementina, to becoming a VR software engineer, his passion revolves around creating shared experiences for himself and others.


While touring with Trementina, Lucas tried VR for the first time. He was inspired to move to Berlin where he studied and became a trainer and mentor at XR Bootcamp. Since then, he has worked with Berlin and international start-ups, exploring the intersection of VR and education, and recently, art.

As a self taught developer with an interest in shared experiences, Lucas has found areas where there are not many tools available. He develops solutions that bridge these gaps, which are sold in the Unity official store and popular amongst new developers.


In 2022, he worked with artist Chloé Lee on the VR project Temporal World (SXSW 2023) which has exhibited around the world. Recently, Lucas was invited to GITEX Global in Dubai where he will speak on VR development and AI.
