1. The Butterfly Dream


A cyborg is trapped in the world of her own anxiety, and meets her nature double in a illusory dream where parallel world has overlapped.

This project is inspired by Zhuangzi's classic fable, The Butterfly Dream, and was recreated by Ruiyang Dai’s individual experience. This 3D experimental video by depicting a person’s emotional journey, from anxiety, hysteria to relief, aims to inspire people to have a close connection with their natural self, which is a condition when you go with the flow, transcend the differences and regulations, see the essence of things.
