The work is composed of two parts: a VR device with no vision function, and interactive theater. It is intended to explore Bardo and VR media, lost history and body perceptions.
Unlike the familiar VR visual sensory experience, viewers need to “shut eyes” to enter the immersive device and perceive the non-visual intrinsic state. After shutting off external figurative vision, the viewer can recreate the internal vision through abstract dynamic light stimulation and spatial audio and then enter the personal consciousness space. The narrative content comes from the oral history of a deceased elder, which recreates the illusion of war, labor, love, and illusion of facing death…However, when the viewer gradually enters the personal consciousness space, the guide (live performer) will lead the viewer away from the original place to stroll, scamper, and push/pull in the unknown reality space… Emotional messages are passed through the limbs. The viewer's personal consciousness space exists in a virtual reality, while the body perception stays in reality. The viewer is in the state of Bardo, which is synchronous and broken at times. Ultimately, through the movement of the body, each experiencer will embark on a personal path in the state of Bardo.
