In a cafe in Berlin, where people meet to enjoy delicious coffee and pastries, former regulars appear after midnight in the form of ghosts. They are sharing their stories with the player, who is able to have a very atmospheric, virtual cafe experience. This experience is a collage of memories of a special place - the caf Two & Two in Berlin, Neuklln - and some of my friends who have frequented it with or without me, while they were living in Berlin and have since moved away. It is a documentary and also very personal piece that let's everyone in the world visit this caf and have a chat with the owner as well as my friends. I believe that it is not only the place but the people and their stories that create a reality. In the displaced society in which we are now unable to meet each other at will, I have felt the need to create a space for my friends to meet in VR. Order a coffee and get some pastries and enjoy this extension of reality.
