Playing the Picturesque - an installation by You+Pea

2 min read

Playing the Picturesque is an interactive installation exploring the boundaries between virtual and physical space.

The installation takes the form of a series of scaled folly structures extracted from real picturesque landscapes, extended into interactive virtual game environments through digital projections. By exploring the movement between physical and virtual realms, it asks whether such boundaries are now so fluid that we can consider virtual worlds as sites for realising architecture in their own right.

You+Pea is the architectural design studio of Sandra Youkhana and Luke Caspar Pearson. Their work explores the integration of video game technologies into architectural design.
