Description

Art of Balancing, is a VR mindfulness game that helps players hone in on what’s most important to them. The experience combines rock stacking, a global past-time that knows no language, with oral storytelling, an age-old tradition. The act of stacking places users into a zen-like flow state where they are then guided to reflect on their relationships with their loved ones in a safe and compassionate platform.

History

AmaVR was formed in 2017 when co-founder Awu Chen posed the question: “How do I preserve the memories of my Grandmother?”. Since then the team has built intimate experiences and installations to understand the most effective ways to share our memories. Since it’s conception, AmaVR has attracted the attention of the LA Times, won international festivals including BAFTA, and developed working relationships with Facebook. 

 

Art of Balancing is AmaVR’s latest endeavor. Inspired by a trip to the Hualien Mountains of Taiwan, the team created this experience in response to the chaotic nature of today’s fast paced society. The result is a VR game that helps players enter a state of inner peace while reflecting on their most intimate relationships.
