Following Heather Lander’s screening at MUTEK Montréal 2020 as part of Amplify D.A.I., Breaking Reverie Revisited presents ideas of magic, natural phenomena and virtual landscapes. It is a reflection on the natural world, with a view to understanding the ways in which the virtual will change our perception of the self and our physical landscape. Award-winning composer, Michael Begg, provides a textured sonic backdrop for this immersive video work.
