Dream-Land, T/Shirt Issue

"With ‘Dream-Land’ we have tried to create our own place beyond time and space; a place that blurs the boundaries between digital and physical reality, in which parallel versions of the Museum’s historic objects are free to exist today. The known is replaced with endless narratives that collectively create an unexpected history and unremembered future."

The artists explain that once digital data is abstracted from an object, its “certainty is removed, leaving it open for alteration and reinterpretation. In a way, it sounds like a digital art interpretation of soul-stealing and perceptions of objecthood that would simultaneously make Poe, Plato, and Plato’s chair proud.

While slowly shaping up to their final form, each of the creatures develops its own personality, and together they form a scene that’s slightly out of the ordinary.”
