«The only reality is existence»
There have always been and there will always be doubts about the reality of the world we live in. Is it real or is it just a dream, or a designed virtual space? Even if someone comes and leads us to the real world by offering the famous red pill, we can still question that world too. Is that one finally real? Or is it another designed space? And what if we design reality? What if we design a reality within a virtual reality that lies inside another virtual reality…? How many designed worlds do we need to cross to finally reach reality? In this VR project the artists designed parallel virtual spaces where users can move in any scene, interact with objects and sounds, and move to another scene using the virtual VR headset located in each scene to discover a new world.
