Synopsis

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.
