In an uncertain future: We are crystalline, born in a world of controls and social scores. The Crystal Heaven Lounge, however, is a place of life and resistance. This club in Wedding is the last place of refuge of our deepest hopes - a bastion of what is human. It exists outside of constant surveillance; it is a fragile, secret world in between. An installation in which the participants become a part of the story with their own parts.
