Using digital scenography and soundscapes, we create artificial landscapes that users can explore from their own space. Having as a starting point a simulation of the physical space that surrounds us when entering the digital space, users can continue their navigation to discover and interact with the parallel atmospheric worlds that are produced using digital representations of everyday objects or nature elements placed in non-spaces or digital voids. Through these virtual spaces we are reproducing digital reflections of ourselves in our bedrooms, daydreaming (or night-dreaming) and looking at the internet and the digital information universe for fuel in our imagination or as a space where our day(night)dreaming takes a physical form albeit digitally physical. It’s a safe space where no data is collected, a space where the web surfer can pause a little, relax, meditate and leave the page as a screensaver.
