Bonus Levels is a utopian world that unfolds as an ongoing series of downloads, videos, performances, prototypes and environments.
Conceived as a virtual novel, each chapter uses simulation as a medium to assemble site-specific collages of objects, forces and environments drawn from reality.
These encrypted fictions draw from the language of architecture and cinema to explore altered states of presence, memory and materiality that exist in digital space.
Each level is rendered visible to the observer through a first-person perspective, a flaneur's point of view where the desire to explore and the need for individual agency both exist.
Lawrence Lek (b. 1982, Frankfurt) explores the physical experience of simulated presence through software, hardware, installations and performance.
