„Eternal Dream“ is a interactive art installation inspired by the eternal dream of flying.
The work consists of an unreachabel blue monolith canvas located in the middle of a water basin. By stepping in a predefined area right infront of the canvas, the visitors body is scanned as a real time point cloud and shown on the canvas.
By jumping up in front of the monolith a copy of the visitors body is taken as a 3D pointcloud and starts to fly up the canvas.
Immediately after the 3D point cloud leaves the canvas, the data is uploaded in the cloud on eternal-dream.digital and continues the journey by an endless flight through the web.
The jump can be seen as a snapshot that catches the moment of the startingpoint for the flight, but it also symbolizes a contract the visitor is signing with the artist to take care of the personal data that was taken by the act of the jump.
