My thesis is an experiential installation that allows users to escape from their daily lives by choosing a virtual, dream-like, mood-enhancing environment.

Sometimes people want to escape from the stress and monotony of their daily lives to relax, or to have a change of scenery. However, more often than not, people cannot break free from their routines. Dream Machine seeks to find a way to remedy this problem, and give people a way to relax without leaving the reality of their surroundings. This installation provides an outlet of escape, using 3D animation and sound, combined with an experiential environment that creates a feeling of rest and relaxation while changing the user’s mood.
