What are we willing to do as a society to fulfil our sensory needs? This growing problem in our current society of the '10 second attention span' is interpreted through the lens of futuristic technologies. We pose the question, 'What would the experience be like, if we could live while we sleep?' But just like with all technologies, there's an unknown cost that comes due. Yun-Yeong Bin AKA 'Rip' lives a double life - that of an underachieving engineering student by day, and two personas each night in the hit VR game FUTURE she plays in her sleep. The catch: one of those personas is her dead best friend, and the lines begin to blur.
