PD4 is a virtual body extending into the algorithmic infinity of an alternative reality. It explores the idea of the presence and awareness of one’s self, measured by impacts such as a feeling of space, time, body, and the idea of (un)real spaces. The viewers become players in a game in which they constantly lose feeling for their own body, thereby experiencing the weight of their own physicality all the more.
