Each of LuYang’s incarnations embodies the energies or emotions of a respective rebirth realm of samsara and is characterized by certain colors, sounds, dance movements. In this process, the DOKU avatars function like containers or shells into which LuYang breathes spirit, imbuing them with personal experiences, religion, and spirituality, and influences from global pop culture in order to reach as many people as possible. They resemble the stars of K-pop and boy bands in their gestures and looks, can appear in different media formats or constellations, and even have their own Instagram account as DOKU Asia.
