Elsewhere responds to the promise of virtual reality to experience new worlds as new characters in new bodies. The work imagines a fall from one reality into another, and a transition between physical and virtual senses of presence. A man stumbles and wades alone through a country stream.

He ignores the world around him, absorbed in the search for a means to escape it—to return to somewhere else and to be someone else.
