In electronics: digital-to-analog converter, a system that converts a digital signal into an analog signal.
Underground, floor to floor, the traditional process of clubbing is transformed into space. After swallowing a senses-transmitting pill the clubber can explore baths, dress rooms, food, drink and drugs, dance floors and sex-sleeping facilities. Here, one can fulfil all his partying, performing, and sexual fantasies, which the space promotes, embraces and transmits to the digital part.
Overground, anyone can have access to clubbing through technology. With a series of connectors and actuators, the system transcends old age, physical disabilities, nationality, occupation, social status or minority group which one might belong to. Each digital clubber is one-way connected to an analog clubber of the corresponding floor, thus forming a 1-to-1 network that transfers all the analog part’s senses to its digital “vessel”.
A digital world sitting on top of an analog world, where the digital, as a mirror of its analog sibling is constantly repeating and amplifying our real lives. These two mirroring worlds, seemingly disparate, expand towards two extremes, the sky and the underground, heaven and hell. But this is where these worlds also meet again. Where the much scorned ethics of desire meet the ambiguous ethics of penthouse tenants.
