“DREAM HOUSE” by Marina Abramovic

Located permanently in Niigata, Japan, “Dream House” project is an experimental artwork where participants are invited to stay in a house curated by Abramovic, who aim to cultivate dreams. The viewer participates with the entire space by living in it, going through rituals to facilitate the process of dreaming. After sleeping in a coordinated pace in ‘dream suits’, the viewer recalls his dreams in the “DREAM BOOK” which is recorded since its first participant.

I would say the interaction between the viewer and this work is raw and organic, playing with the line between reality and imaginary. Each dream becomes part of the work that documents the existence of each viewer and a fragment of their imagination that lived within the art work.

“UNIVERSE OF WATER PARTICLES ON A ROCK WHERE PEOPLE GATHER” by teamLab, 2018, Interactive Digital Installation, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

This art installation digitalised the flow of water of a waterfall into lines of light, creating a virtual space in a three dimensional space. When a viewer stands on the rock or touches the waterfall, the flow of water changes as a response to the interaction to create an ever-changing state.

I feel that the interaction in this work is of face-value given the possibilities of digital technology. But the work can be appreciated for its scale and beauty.
