PARHELION is the app development stage of the continuously unfolding practice named EDEN, initiated by artist Christiane Peschek, that aims to build resonance with a wider audience beyond the art sector. PARHELION is a hyper-personalised virtual environment that is activated by the presence of the individual user. Acting as a portal to the extended self in the metaverse, it helps users gain a new perspective on themselves - a step towards "virtual enlightenment". PARHELION is a timely contextualisation of emerging technologies (GPT3, AI, VR) through a new philosophy of a body-screen relationship built on the artist’s belief that the Internet and virtual spaces have the ability to respond, read, heal and understand the human counterpart, aside from entertainment and sensory overload.

PARHELION is the app development stage of the continuously unfolding practice named EDEN, initiated by artist Christiane Peschek, that aims to build resonance with a wider audience beyond the art sector. PARHELION is a hyper-personalised virtual environment that is activated by the presence of the individual user. Acting as a portal to the extended self in the metaverse, it helps users gain a new perspective on themselves - a step towards "virtual enlightenment". PARHELION is a timely contextualisation of emerging technologies (GPT3, AI, VR) through a new philosophy of a body-screen relationship built on the artist’s belief that the Internet and virtual spaces have the ability to respond, read, heal and understand the human counterpart, aside from entertainment and sensory overload.
PARHELION is a hyper-personalised virtual environment that is activated by the presence of the individual user. It finds its form through usage, like a mirror that grows together with the user. Resonance is nurtured between the device and the user; between the user’s physicality and their virtuality.
PARHELION aims to be a digital equivalent to the favourite place or a place of retreat in real life. A place separate from social media and the pressures of sharing content. A virtual space that has the ability to respond, to read and understand the human counterpart, and even holds the potential to heal, aside from entertainment and sensory overload. The app acts as a threshold to connect the user to PARHELION, a portal to the extended self in the metaverse. The aim is not to make the users feel better after a session, but to gain a new perspective on themselves - a step towards "virtual enlightenment".
The user connects to PARHELION and sends energy by placing a hand on the smartphone screen. Over time and with regular use, a personal metaverse is created. It extends the user’s identity through the virtual by a profile that is set by user actions, decisions and biometric data - assembled by AI models that are trained by the team to decode them as sensual, spiritual and emotional indicators. Users are prompted with impulses that guide them towards a more sincere and holistic alignment of their virtual and physical self. This takes the form of combinations of colour, sound, visuals, text, frequencies and light pulses. If the user has the means and desire, the space can also be experienced in extended reality via Ocolus VR Glasses.
