Due to their empty state and lack of purpose, wastelands are not subject to social norms. Thus they represent huge spaces of freedom. From this contrast has emerged a desire to create a life experience by turning this space into an outdoor studio. It then becomes a playground where physical and intuitive experiments are celebrated with a certain childlike and creative naivety. This is a land where you can escape the virtual and technological world as an act of rebellion.
