Technology has created the potential for immersing ourselves in a completely non-real and artificial worlds. In this series I ask you: What world are we living in, the Real or the Virtual?

I have created massive oversized glasses, as a representation of our distorted worldview, and trapped within them small clay figurines—humanity trapped in a technological maze of his own design. Looking into these glasses, we can ask ourselves how much technology serves us, or how much we are trapped by it. Are machines cutting us off completely from our true selves? At the same time, the patterns stretching into infinity remind us that the choices are limitless, and they are ours.
