The definition of Surreal for me are unimaginable experinces which could only take place in the dream world. While the whole concept of AR seems quite breathtakingly beautiful, that doesn't mean that we should restrict ourselves to real experiences that could be created in a virtual space.

The Blue Whale being the largest recorded creature on our planet seemed like an interesting idea. This is because even though we've seen Whales in the sky before (photo-manipulation, gifs, music videos etc.) we've never really explored them inside our own personal spaces.

There wasn't much to this project, but I really liked showing it to my friends and sometimes, taking their photos along with it as well. It really set me in a direction that I didn't know I wanted to explore...
