We are concerned with the exchange, relay and connection between the artwork, the place, and the viewer. The work is triggered by the potential of intervening with a site that can realise our concerns of creating an audio-visual experience with a narrative idea. Reality Version 1.5 explores the notion of weaving a virtual world into the architectural fabric to blur the viewer’s spatiality with that of the artwork in an immersive, ephemeral viewing experience.
We hope to seduce the viewer into an epiphany, a glimpse of vision beyond the veils of illusion into the waking moment.
