still Samsara (Hsin-Chien Huang, TW 2022)


Hsin-Chien Huang / TW, 2021 / 21 min.

Put on your VR headset and step into a world the like of which you’ve never seen before. A dystopian trip through time and space over millions of years, inspired by the Buddhist principle of the six realms.

poster Nu:Reality: Trailblaizing Taiwan - Samsara

In the near future, the Earth’s environment is completely destroyed by the human race. We have to abandon it and find a new home in space. After a hundred years of space travel, we have re-engineered our DNA and artificially evolved into a new form. We jumped through the space singularity and found a new planet to settle down.

Many years go by, and we suddenly realise that we didn’t reach a new world but returned to Earth in another time as a different life form, and our ancestors now are predators to us. Several attempts are made to leave Earth which leads back to it. Then, we realise that time is an illusion; our past, present, and future are fused together.

  • Please arrive 5 minutes in advance so your headset can be fitted.
