Dreaming in digital

Run into the sun

We take the screen for granted, assuming it reveals the real world. But the phone format only offers an exterior point of view.

Our screens fool us. All it takes is a few swipes at the Instagram Stories palette to give ourselves wings. Digital life is an activity of the most unfettered imagination.  

Augmented reality is still nascent — there is still no good way to combine the digital and physical worlds. In the meantime, we toggle between reality and irreality to arouse the nearest attention.

Rarely bored but always on — we project ourselves into the future, trying to bring new content into the immediate evidence of the senses.
