Vague Haven Feb 22-28th 2019

A large scale interactive / immersive installation

Haven- a place of safety or refuge, a haven for wildlife
Vague - seemingly; apparently but not really

Vague Haven, a contemplation of the natural, lush, fertile paradise, an eden of sorts, within the context of today’s technological culture. A place where lovers and refugees hide or take shelter as a community. This haven is intended to be a playground for creative interactions, performance and experimentation.
