An unravelling performance without on-stage performers

Liquid dreams is a journey through imagination, dream worlds, (virtual) reality and the interface of hard- and software which we use on a daily base. Text becomes image, image ultimately becomes something more than a mere collection of pixels. Can we imagine a world in which symbiosis prevails between how we format and are being formatted?
I had a dream in which my eyes were closed
yet I could see more clearly than ever before
I saw magnificent sounds,
heard mesmerizing shapes
and tasted overwhelming colors
It was most certainly a dream,
for I woke up and had to deal
with the fact that it was over
The whole time I was dreaming
I knew that it wasn’t real
but I so badly wanted it to be
that it became more real
than anything else I’ve ever experiencedLiquid dreams is the graduation project by Simon Baetens.
