Haoran Chang: Fair Sai Re Pi VR

Haoran Chang - Fair Sai Re Pi LLC, Artist Statment

Fair Sai Re Pi LLC is a project in reimagining a pyramid scheme company that appropriated Chinese Traditional Medicine to a fictional corporation offering Fire Therapy Treatment, inheriting the wisdom from the ancient Shennong AI. Through bringing audience in a fictional immersive VR environment, this project forms a critique on this company with internal capitalistic logic in exploitation, solidifying vertical hierarchy, and excessive consumption, and to question the relationship between Western modernity and the philosophy of Chinese Traditional Medicine.
