“Art means happiness. Because when I make art, it makes me happy. And when people look at my art, they’re happy…
Happiness is art.”

For the ART CAN DIE exhibition in Bangkok, Vipoo is creating an exclusive art installation named "Room for Spirit and Time", a multimedia statue that the visitor can step into to feel a healing experience of light, sound and scent.
Within the theme of the exhibition, the art piece invites the visitor for a rite of passage, preparing him for a new society in transformation.
