The New Kingdom

The New Kingdom is an exploration of mortality and choice through Virtual Reality. A collaboration with Jamie Martinez.

Inspired by the Egyptian Book of the Dead, Ko and Martinez train their audience to die. In this first installment, the passenger sees Anubis for the first time. A codex is wrapped around the world.

In ancient times, only royalty possessed a codex which prepared them to navigate the afterlife. The codexes were personalized cheat sheets that few could afford. Eventually, the upper class was able to pay priests for their own versions. This experience will eventually culminate in the viewer receiving their own unique codex, a nod to our über-consumerist, times of plenty…
