Smooth Lagoon is a soothing, guided tour of a virtual beach. A CRT television rests upon a monolithic pedestal. Its screen displays a video loop of a simulated beach-scape—a 3D, low polygon environment reminiscent of '90s video game worlds. A harmonic soundscape, played through headphones, features melodic hints of the tropical and narration that guides the viewer. Opposite the television is a sandbox in which a chair has been placed for viewing. Above, a quartz lamp is positioned just outside the viewer's periphery to simulate the presence of a hot, lush sun.
