The VR room-scale experience GARDEN OF CHANGES alters the common playbook for Virtual Reality experiences, the audience is invited to stroll through the recreated landscape of a digitally preserved Chinese Garden while pondering about themselves. To help with the introspective practice, the users have to follow a set of rules, inspired by the ancient iChing. Devising a question and looking for answers while roaming, the park recalibrates the medium from the format of sensation and spectacle to the domain of dreams and inspiration.
