Awakening the Visual and Auditory Senses of Vegetative Patients is a cooperative and cross-disciplinary program involving medical science, psychology, Buddhism and art. In this program, personalized visual and audio works are created based on the main memories, emotions and images of the patients as adjunctive means to awaken them. This program is set to explore the primitive force of life. Artists attempt to wake “vegetative patients who will not be able to contribute to the society even if they regain consciousness” and turn them into unique living individuals capable of artistic appreciation.
