"You never really remember the beginning of a dream." (Dominick Cobb, "Inception" directed by Christopher Nolan and released in 2010.)

“We are living in a simulation.” (Elon Musk, Interview at the Code Conference in 2016)

Many online exhibitions experienced through smartphones or VR represent the spaces and artworks within the venue in 3D, while the view outside the windows appears 2D, resembling photographs generated by the system. Matsumura, however, drew attention to this and replaced the actual view outside the gallery's windows with photographs of the same landscape in an exhibition held in a physical gallery. At first, the audience didn't notice, but gradually began to feel a clear sense of discomfort. This artwork gives the illusion that the world is made entirely of false things.
