Where does reality begin, and where does it end? Inspired by the Japanese philosophy of an all-inclusive interconnected reality, I have explored these questions. And, following the worldwide lockdown, I considered this ideology under the new and unforeseen circumstances.

So, where does reality begin? Where does it end? The lockdown brought these questions to an even greater significance, as we turned to technology to recreate a version of reality and normality. We used our screens as a portal to access some kind of reunion with actuality, whilst in turn disassociating from reality itself.

Thus, whilst examining both the syntheses and the margins of the artificial and the physical, this predominantly filmic project reflects the collective experience of the boundaries and perceptions of Reality and the Self becoming blurred and mutated during the worldwide lockdown and pandemic.
