This is an Academic collective construction -“Sublime Oasis In-transit”-, in the way of a complex system of individual events that are infra-structurally assembled, pursuing that hypermedia transgresses the logical boundaries of physical space/time/frame.
This Hyper-Diorama is a visual masterpiece between the fictional and the distilled real fragments of our cabinets; an artificial landscape where fiction and collection collide. Horizon and scale are multiple, manipulating frame and disrupting linear sequence.
By including texts, images and videos, this Hyper-Media tool establishes a systematical and interconnected articulation of those projective and architectural moments developed during the course, together with an encyclopaedic collection of (extraordinary) data that attempt to tell stories about the wonders and oddities of the (selected) world. This is both an operative and accumulative tool, an ideological as well as technical construction.
