Dream-Land is a sculptural installation inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's poem 'Dream-land' (1844) where a dream-voyager arrives in a place beyond space and time and decides to stay there.
In a transdisciplinary approach to develop a digital narrative, eight pieces of the V&A's permanent collection were 3D scanned and digitally sculpted into four physical hybrid creatures.
Once its digital data is extracted, an object's certainty is removed, leaving it open for alteration and reinterpretation. Similar to dreams, all boundaries seem to vanish, creating a new context in which a parallel version of the object is free to exist. The known is replaced with endless narratives that collectively create an unexpected history and unremembered future.
