Another work, “Peace Tent / Revolving Peace in Silence,” is an immersive environment, a white meditation tent with ambient lighting and music for meditation. Upon entering the interactive space, the visitor finds a fun and playful environment with a massive stop-motion audio-visual display: “And this is how it should be – may this song bring peace!”.

In Paint Peace, people can color a painting on the wall while thinking about the theme of peace. In Calming Your Life work, the invitation is to spin a wheel on the wall and identify areas of life that need calming. There is also a central space to sit and make paintings and drawings about peace.
