Doku / 独生独死 / behind scenes from LuYang on Vimeo.
Alone we are born,
and alone we come into the world, When we die, alone we pass away.
For no one shares our fate, and none our suffering.
So what are they to me,
such ‘friends’ and all their hindrances?.”
ーThe Larger Sutra on Amitāyus

Lu Yang Digital Incarnation opens up a new way of collaborative expression for creative talents from all fields including artists, musicians, dancers, poets, sci-fi writers, scientists and philosophers, to collectively construct a world of infinite possibilities.
“Dokusho Dokushi” is the creator and the creator’s own creation. It is built to unleash the full creative potential of virtual technology and blur the traditional boundaries between art, entertainment and business.
