Whether Giovanni Battista Piranesi’s Carceri or ambiguous images and hidden faces: Dreamland is not a simulation, but visualises the universal ability of our perception to recognise motion and stories in patterns and in repetition – however abstract they may be – conjuring up worlds. Here, all this occurs through the nuanced animation of polygons. The most remarkable thing about Dreamland is its universality: “Retro-futuristic structures proliferate and pulsate to synthetic baroque music. Geometric grandeur with maximum opulence. This magic isometric world is created from nothing and continues to grow. Forget reduction: more is more. Dreamland will never be completed. Dreamland will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.” (Mirai Mizue)
