Costume National, “Cyber Garden”

Benignly minty and sweet. A nice boy on his first date with a girl way cooler than him that he met online. Despite its name, Cyber Garden is familiar and quite ordinary. It is the plastic plants at IKEA that privilege uninspired mimicry over celebrating and elevating its own artifice. It is regrettably not the verdant, immersive AR landscape I had hoped for, cultivated in a future so bright, that everyone must wear tiny round mirrored sunglasses.
