Step into virtual reality experience Mandala Flow State, designed in conjunction with Awaken: A Tibetan Buddhist Journey Toward Enlightenment.
Commissioned by the museum as part of Awaken: A Tibetan Buddhist Journey Toward Enlightenment, Mandala Flow State takes the user through an immersive journey of a 3D mandala. The journey is clouded by fog that must be cleared by focusing one’s mind, which is analogous to a meditative state as measured by brain activity. This experience unifies traditional Buddhist practices and modern technological enhancement of self-regulation, which share the common goal of enlightenment.
First come, first served. Sign up for the experience on-site in the Vinson Gallery.
