📱 Mobile : Move with WASD buttons, Gaze by dragging the screen

💻 PC : Move with WASD or arrow keys, Gaze by mouse movement

You can access the WebVR on both PC and mobile environments. WebAR is for mobile only. The narrative interconnects across WebVR and AR.

Chandra X is an unknown dimension of space-time. Like X-rays, the environment accumulates the volumes of time and space, the density and weight of which emulates those of black holes. Astronomically similar to a neutron star, Chandra X rotates 712 times per second, and often glitching with radiant energy. It is also classified as an anti-optimized environment. ...

In Chandra X, you are invited to play and perform as meta-authorities to Chandra(s). Chandra (they/them), the protagonist as played by audiences in Chandra’s Signal(2021), are interplanetary network environment manager(s) living in a near future, authorized with a certain degree of access to bio-resources in the universe. Remotely accessing the planets in charge, Chandra perform a set of labor such as Wielding, Archiving, Supervising, Detecting the planetarian’s production and use of resources, for which Chandra earn ‘income’ from their meta-authorities. Here in Chandra X, you are remotely connected to the remote-accessing behaviors of Chandra(s), infinitely doubling the acts of Wielding, Archiving, Supervising, Detecting.

However, your movement and gaze in Chandra X will be synchronized with someone already connected to the environment prior to you. You are lucky if you can perform W A S D on your own in Chandra X. Otherwise, it means someone is trying to Wield, Archive, Supervise, Detect you.

Pressing the nova above, you can access an "augmented performance apparatus" that allows you to intervene with the performance of someone already there in Chandra X. This apparatus also somehow renders you as Chandra(s), creating and managing planets from your own remote locations, sending audio-visual documentations to your labor and practices back to Chandra X. -->

On Extended Performativity

The artist roughly defines the medium of as "3D Performing Apparatus-Environment" (at least for now). The current version of the apparatus-environment is implemented in "extended reality (XR)", in which Web-based Virtual Reality(VR) and Augmented Reality(AR) interoperates. It is an environment where multiple audiences can interconnect, interact, intervene across each other's experiences in real time; across asynchronous realities in a synchronous network environment. What the artist is particularly interested in is the (un)intentional senses of “performativity” performed and played between the virtual and reality, between apparatuses, between remote environments, and between performers and audiences. And yet, this performativity in concern shall only be transformed and completed via an apparatus-environment known as you! Please tell us about your experiences as another medium of this work on this link.
