Chén is a computer-generated animation. Drawing from the concept of Chén/dust from Daoism, this animation constructs a world in which every being of the world is constituted and created by Chén.

This story is about a conversation between two Chén, during which they discuss their origin stories, existential crises, and desires to create bodies that ultimately imprison them.

By utilizing a de-human-centered narrative, Chén questions the separation between bodies and boundaries between identities in the hope of calling for understanding and empathy between beings.
