Heads in the Cloud is an interactive site-specific work. It is designed to question our notions of viewing and our experience of space in everyday life. Gadgets and technologies are supposed to bridge the gap between the time and space, but our deep dependency on these gadgets and technologies move us further from the immediate tangible world pushing us towards a virtually stimulated life. As the virtual world becomes a blindfold, we are increasingly amazed to feel reality through virtuality. Using an augmented reality-based app which mixes virtual elements to the actual surroundings, Awdhesh attempts to bring the reality noticed through the virtuality to the fore.
