Digital Rest: Minority Report

I was trying to think about situations in media where technology has been used as an escape. It may be based in the future but i think the first minute of this scene in Minority report (2002) shows how the future may be when we have the technology. It’s a digital version of what i talked about in the last post about Digital Rest. The places which Oliver Grau calls Illusion spaces. In this Digital Rest, people go to find sanctuary in a world that does not exist, they escape all the problems in their lives and live out a dream in the virtual world.
