Chandelier, produced for the final MA show, explores the dialogue between the ephemeral nature of the image and the solidity of the architectural mass. By weaving a visualisation of a friends recurring dream into the grandeur of the architectural fabric to dissolve its physical containment and blur the distinctions between real space and virtual space by creating an illusionary space beyond its confines.

In an attempt to bind the viewer’s spatiality with the context in an immersive viewing experience, I hope to seduce the audience into the romance of the dream.
