Mirage Machines, a show on Bubblebyte.org

Mirage Machines on Bubblebyte.org

Mirage Machines is a miraculous mechanical imaginary landscape generator. The machines in question are websites of form and color, they live inside domains taken from philosophy, borrowed from psychoanalysis or just the result of uncoscious blabber. "Reading" these machines is a fusion of illusionistic, meta- experiential experience experiment inside your browser life, and it wishes to keep you away from de-facto notions of time, space and reality.
