Digitally reconstructed palimpsest of unrealised art and architecture projects together with hallucinogenic and robotic speeches about escapism, virtual projecting and self realisation.
~ Excerpt from the PC game:
Lotus eaters go to sleep
or faint and awaken in their own
personal paradises. Anything what
they wanted is now theirs. Their primary
the source of livelihood is the so-called Blue Flower
from the coast of the Nile, or the Egyptian lotus,
which has strong hallucinogenic effects.
By consuming this crop, they end up in a seemingly endless sweet apathy, refusing to leave the new perfect world that was created in their image.
But later they find out that they are being held as
prisoners by someone or something that causes an
intense and realistic hallucinations.
Sometimes these lotus eaters
are aware of this, but they don't mind. If they want to escape this trap, they must
give up their life dreams and become satisfied
with the everyday life of everyday reality.
