An illustrated fantasy world seems to have become intertwined into the real world of a young girl's room. The girl is asleep and dreaming, hinting that the world portrayed is not real. She embodies one reason why people become addicted to online games: the desire to escape from a bland and monotonous reality into a more colourful and beautiful world.
In today's world, technology has become so advanced that the graphics in video games can appear truly real. They are so identical to real life that the boundaries become blurred in the mind of a gamer. The virtual world and her own world have become so intertwined that she sees both realities exist in her life. Her own room and the virtual world have become one.
