Sara Ludy: Dream House, est. 2014
May 24 - June 21, 2014
Opening reception Saturday May 24, 6-9 PM
Dream House is a 10 minute video introducing Sara Ludy’s latest work, an on-going virtual architecture project inspired by lucid dreams and sacred spaces.
This secluded 100-acre island gem is found resting on the center coordinates from a 3 second transport time. Surrounded by void, this island is a timeless wonder; featuring Dream House, the primary memory palace experience.
The north side of the premise includes a 9-plug waking pad equipped with sustainable primitives and reliable access. Just west of the waking pad is a uniquely tiered water feature overlooking space in a remarkable scene. On the southeast coordinates, between the lush eastern hills and the arid south basin, resides the shapeshifting Dream House; a domestic labyrinth built with familiar geometries and sacred details.
Created during the 1st period, Dream House is known as “the palace of dreams”. This hybrid dream architecture includes 3 lucid dream spaces precisely constructed utilizing genuine memories, native textures and brilliant moonlight. The house is furnished with premier animistics; Transport Bed, Stack of Books, Vanity Mirror, Floating Mirror, Floor Curves, Disc, Entity Bust, Sun Disc and Fountain Pad. All animistics are full automated and activated by proximity.
Dream House comfortably accommodates multiple embeds, providing an ideal platform for remote experiences. Dream House is the traveler's perfect destination for exploring authentic dreams embedded in time, space and structure.
**Additional details and dream log coming soon.
