Dream-e-scape at Microwave Media Art Festival, Hong Kong

An Immersive Interactive Cinematic Art Installation by Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger

"Blend make-believe with reality in “Dream-e-scape,” by Laia Cabrera & Isabelle Duverger. A room that manages to feel intimate and limitless at the same time.
As the walls shift into countless scenes ranging from the familiar (a tranquil coral reef) to the fantastical (a vortex of swirling cosmos), you’ll feel like you’ve tumbled down the rabbit hole into Wonderland.
Your every movement and action in Dream-e-scape will unlock different scenarios and dreams.
Keep your eyes wide open as you make the art come alive!"

"Dream-e-scape" is an interactive projection art installation about lucid dreams, created by filmmaker Laia Cabrera and multimedia artist Isabelle Duverger, in collaboration with interactive designer Aniol Saurina Masó and composer and instrumentalist Nana Simopoulos.

The piece is an immersive and interactive 360º installation about the mind and the search for awareness in which the public experiences a sensory voyage that captures the surreal nature of dreams, where the line is blurred between the physical and the digital world, between the real and the imaginary.

“Dream-e-scape” is based on the state of sleep, an imaginary journey one can experience with the eyes wide open. The piece explores the concept of Lucid Dream, the state in which we are asleep and become aware we are dreaming, and the ability we have to control the dreams, the agency we have over our thoughts and desires. We are testing reality, are we awake?

Conceived and Directed by Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger
