Reality Bonsai

"Reality Bonsai" is a project where:
the research, which I conduct between the UK at Solent Southampton and Japan, is expressed through a short-movie.

One of the main ideas addressed is escapism.
Revising the theory of Anne Allison (Anne Allison, 2006 p. 84)* by which: “[...] everyday life is mediated by constructed realities that are increasingly engaged as a solitary activity” towards a new definition of a shared virtual reality which superimposes on the factual reality as it is experienced in Japan.
