Body Cosmos
Rem Rungu Lin 林润谷


Body Cosmos is an immersive and interactive artwork that connects the human body with the cosmic environment through real-time bio-data. Using volumetric rendering techniques and particle system, we create a surreal virtual reality that reflects the intricate structures of human anatomy and celestial nebulae. We integrate a heart rate sensor and an EEG headband to capture and process bio-data into emotion indicators, which influence the visualization of particles in the artwork. This creates an intimate, personal connection with the cosmos, transcending immediate presence and nurturing a perpetual presence within the cosmic expanse. We also provide two engagement modes: Roller Coaster Mode and Free Explore Mode, allowing different levels of exploration. Body Cosmos is more than a visual spectacle; it sparks curiosity, expands the imagination, and enhances awareness of our embodied and cosmic
