New Performing Art
XR OBSESSION (Extended Reality) integrates a live element with augmented, virtual, and mixed realities to mesmerize the audience. It is a performing, conceptual, kinetic, digital, video, abstract, and performance art. It vividly traverses the history, art, and natural beauty of Taiwan through time and space. Dynamic volumetric capture fuses with 3D animation. A live performance blends with AR/VR realms and is projected on a large LED wall for all to enjoy a new exciting immersive XR experience. Is it chaos or obsession? Someone searches for her thousands of times, from the mountains and out to sea; seeing mountains that are not mountains and bodies of water that are not water. It is impossible to find one’s way out of this illusionary maze! Exactly who is the object of this obsession? Who or what is the reason for getting lost in this maze? Is there a way back or will he fall into the abyss? Life is like a dream. Life is like an obsession. Is every pursuit ultimately empty?
