United by one common concept of the Free Dome * universe, each project has its own story. The Dreaming Big of All Time is finding your own paradise, a source of endless bliss, in which you can hide from any problems. Meditative video art with original healing sound frequency music that will immerse the viewer in a kind of relaxing trance. And let the whole world wait! Nowadays we have the highest level of comfort ever. Many fantasies and wishes are real. Technologies give us a lot of opportunities and free time. But has our life become happier? Can technologies create a paradise for everyone? * The “Free_Dome” project — literally, an empty head— is a kind of meditative journey through the individual’s inner world, where we don’t strive to influence something, but as an observer relax and slowly float through our thoughts and fantasies.
