aaajiao - Deep Simulator
In a room set up with a gaming station and standalone, surreal objects evocative of tree branches rendered by digital algorithm, aaajiao’s metagame Deep Simulator invites the viewer to partake in a space exploration at once both real and virtual.
Deep Simulator sees computational power as the prime engine that generates the state of our world. The six possible states of Bardo—a term originated from Buddhism that describes the intermediate state between death and rebirth—can be retrieved by the player via six levels of computational power.
