Epic Hotel

Lu Pingyuan has written a series of stories that can be encountered across episodes, and in the Biennial’s book. One describes a two-sided lake that a diver uses to swim between continents, and another tells the tale of little Kiki whose origami figure comes to life as a disgruntled artist. A third, which can be seen painted on the side of the Epic Hotel as part of the Monuments from the Future episode, reveals a dystopian future, where a factory full of Van Gogh clones endlessly produce paintings made from the remains of their unsuccessful colleagues.
