----------------------------------------------------

Nowadays, digital devices can be perceived as the extension of human perception. Layers of digitally created image, sound and information - are layers of realities created by each individual. 

Reality is probably not as stable as we think, it is fluid and uncertain, and it can drift into an unseen and intangible state. Oscillating between knowing and unknowing deflects all understandings of cognition of a tangible reality. Everyone has the power to make up their own reality - the understanding of reality is different from one person to another. 

By gazing inside subtle fluctuations of existence, an unknown and unseen world could gradually be revealed, and a unique synchronised experience can be shared within. 

Our initial idea started from thinking about digital media and an exhibition about digital works. We spoke about having an exhibition just with projected works. This opened up a very long discussion questioning reality, alternative realities, spirituality, science-fiction and film effects. We were thinking too much about the definition of the exhibition over and over again, thinking that there is a definition when actually there isn’t. It's up to you to define it.
