We live in a time of fast technological advancement, and each Internet breakthrough has a significant impact on people's lives. The delivery of knowledge has been revolutionised by technical advancements, from printing to television to the Internet. The medium is a metaphor, and the more direct transfer of information makes it more difficult for individuals to perceive "truth." The project predicts that by 2040, an immersive virtual world with the "Metaverse" as its basic framework will be the primary working, living, learning, and social environment for humans, and it analyses the influence of the virtual environment on people's cognition and perception of danger.


Yue Sun is a Beijing-based designer. He enjoys researching and learning about the connection between people's lifestyles and the environment. He also enjoys reading books on history and technology. He thinks that the living environment is dynamic, and that an appropriate environment has a significant positive impact on society, culture, and people's health.

He used to work at a design firm in Beijing, where he was involved with various commercial and residential projects. During his two years at RCA, he concentrated on design theory research and set his sights on the future of human life.
