Margaux Charvolin – Ming Shan Digital Experience

Diploma project by Margaux Charvolin

“MSDE” is an immersive installation for Mind-Body-Spirit practitioners. In collaboration with the Ming Shan Taoist Centre, this research project brings together designers, data scientists and meditation experts to unite digital culture and traditional practices. The system makes use of physiological parameters in a biofeedback loop to generate an acoustic and visual landscape. The meditation environment is then generated by the inner state of all practitioners. The installation aims not only to facilitate individual practice, but also to strengthen shared meditation through collective feedback.
