TERRAFORMING & GEOCENTRISM

I would often imagine myself walking in a low-gravity space, somewhere that is probably explored by human beings in the future. As an artist, I enjoy digital tools’ capability of transforming human thoughts and expectations into visible and tangible forms. In this interactive virtual reality game, through role-playing as a foreigner in the alien world, we reflect on our relationships with the outer world and other races, questioning what is the purpose of retaining humanity in a world with advanced technologies and magics, which are highly alike in the sense of altering our lifestyles and concept of self. Let us imagine new ways to reshape the concepts of nature, the universe, and our identity as Earth-bred creatures.
