Project: immersive reactive installation at KIOSK Art Gallery, Ghent, Belgium
Technology: projections, interactive systems
Concept, design and production: YiNong Dong
The concept of my work is based on the relationship between Taoist philosophy and Nature. New forms of technology are used to raise people’s awareness about the essential role of Nature.
According to Taoist philosophy, the wisdom of mankind is the ability to comprehend and respect Nature’s processes and rhythms. Nowadays Nature – man’s habitat, is neglected and sacrificed for industrialisation. People are involved in the hectic rhythms of society, they plan the future without worrying about the consequences of the present.
The installation is structured in four stages: Urban Environment, Nature, Self Discovery, Self Balance, which symbolise the Taoist path to inner balance. It combines different technologies to generate the right synesthetic experience.
