HanaHana 花華

HanaHana 花華 is an artistic VR experience by contemporary artist Mélodie Mousset. The first prototype finished in 2017 received critical success and awards.

In HanaHana you are the creative life force within a surreal VR sandbox. You can sprout hands, grow chains of hands and construct anything you can imagine from this root component.

The metaverse is persistant over multiple players and features a multi-user option. The more users create hands the more the world generates a dynamic life of its own.
