An art installation that creates a virtual reality world for people to encounter and become spectators of themselves.


Sukhavati is an exploration about the question “What is the true-self? Is that possible for people to live without ego?”

Using an Oculus Rift headset, Kinect and EEG sensor, Sukhavati creates a virtual world that allows the viewer to observe her/himself from an alternate angle. The viewer is immersed in a parallel reality that resembles the same physical room the viewer sits in, quietly observing his/her own image composed from thousands of pixel particles. When the viewer loses the state of deep relaxation, his/her self-image transforms into numerous particles that flows freely in the room.
