Abstract

In our highly computerized world, we live in an environment which resembles an intertwining mobius of 'real' and 'virtual'. In interact-ed's visual context, the virtual and the real have been quettioned with respect to this interrelation. The investigation is moreover done with the concept of dreams. Dreams, like virtual environments, affect our life 'apperently'; not 'really'. As affective experiences, virtual (environments) and dreams are tightly related to each other. In somne conditions they become substitudes of themselves. In such a relation, both the virtual environments and dreams need a newly defined reality. Redefinition of reality or a construction of reality becomes the igniting derive of the project. In the theoretical side of the thesis there has been apsychoanalytical reading of VR throughout the screen-based VR applications which has been classified as conscious and unconscious. From another point of classification a trilogy of VR which consist of uncoscious, positioning the actualizing is proposed. In unconscious section, dynamic of pleasure, in the positioning the immertion, and in the actualizing interactivity is questioned with respect to project. In the implementation phase, 2D graphic (Photoshop, Freehand), 3D (3dsMax, Maya) and multimedia tools (Macromedia Director, Flash Mx) have been used.
