The 8th Oriental Design Forum & 2022 The International Symposium on Oriental Design


In 1992, Neil Stephenson described a surrealistic three-dimensional digital space parallel to the real world in his novel Avalanche, and proposed the concepts of “Metaverse” and “Avatar”, which are recognized as the official proposer of metaverse. In 2020, the COVID-19 has swept the world, the online operations in various fields have increased significantly, and there is a tendency to become the norm. The year 2021 is the first year of the Metaverse, and it is also the year of development when human beings start to migrate from the real dimension to the virtual world. From Roblox, a sandbox game platform, being the “first meta-universe stock”, to Facebook officially changing its name to Meta shortly afterwards, leading to a surge in “meta-universe concept stocks”, the meta-universe boom has sparked a lot of “curiosity and ambition”.However, as Meta’s stock price plummeted in February this year, the overzealous enthusiasm for the metaverse began to fade, and people began to wonder what the true value of the metaverse was. It was during this “sanity and exploration” phase that we at ISDS stepped in and planned ISDS-Meta, a timely move, so to speak.
