Enter the Astral

Enter the Astral

 

Enter the Astral was an experiment of physical space in our present reality designed to symbolize one possible version of alternative reality on the astral plane. The environment was designed for visitors to examine how visual distortion – as frequently experienced in different states of dreaming – may or may not affect their personal space interactions with both friends and strangers.

To achieve the desired experience, the project required at least two willing participants.
