Sound artist and therapist Paul Yip will take participants on a mesmerising journey of visual stimulation and healing soundscapes that induce a spiritual awareness of “reality”, questioning our experiences of existence and non-existence, contradiction and transcendence of duality.
This programme was originally scheduled to be presented eight times in February 2020 as part of the 48th HKAF.
