Irreality office is about treating reality as being unreal. The space is designed in a way that makes this possible. People are in a physical, but render-like environment
where materials, space, and interaction have unusual behaviour.
The project doesn’t want to ask the question what is reality,
but rather open up the participants to new realities that can
enrich out lives. We tend to have a clear definition of what is
true and what is not. We trust science and take knowledge
as facts, although we know it changes over time. There is
an opportunity to open our selfs up to new possiblities.
During their stay guests are confronted with alternative
versions or layers of reality, such as rendering or wireframe
states, reality, or hyper realities. While we are accustom to
strict lines between physical and virtual, this home office
environment becomes the setting for a blurring of the lines,
while new borders evolve. Alternatives emerge, physics get
disassociated or overcome and the progress of time questioned. Exploring these phenomena encourages people to
mistrust what we commonly consider certain, as well as
human ‘knowledge’ and ’truth’ in general. Reality can
become experienced in a more creative way.
