Realized via neurotechnology, the immersive environment senses and reflects the viewer’s changing attention levels. Donning an electroencephalogram (EEG) headset, the viewer enters an enclosed room with a series of color-coded paintings. Her changing brainwaves illuminate the room with light of different colors. The painted figures therefore glimmer, emerging from the darkness and fleeting away, as they struggle to survive the ecological apocalypse engulfing them. 

In different states of mind, the viewer perceives the same paintings differently, while the real appearance of the paintings remains unknown. Such momentary glimpses of the work allude to people’s subjective perception of the external world. Simplistic understandings of the other obscure the truth and easily lead to friction between religious groups and social classes. As one viewer controls the color in the environment, others can also see what she sees, questioning the boundaries between reality and illusion as well as self and other.
