In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (John 1:1)
“Book Of A Hundred Ghosts” is a virtual reality installation, a Chinese parable staged in the form of a virtual tableau. It reimagines the history of an ancient land as a Book of falling words and crushing signs, inciting awe, fear, pain and carnal pleasure.
The falling words, each unique, is a blend of characters that appear only once in Confucius’ “Analects” and the Constitution of the People’s Republic of China; two important texts that supposedly serve to govern the moral and political being of Chinese both symbolically and practically.
