FUTURE TAO


Future Tao is an ongoing development of Taoist-informed practices for mind and body cultivation. Inspired by Taiwanese park culture, we explore a fluid field of new and old cosmologies, their corresponding technologies, and the ontology of public spaces in  contemporary times.


Future Tao 未來道,是由 lololol 發起的藝術項目,關注道思想的身心技術以及今日修行的意義和想像。最初靈感來自於台灣的公園武術文化,成員參與團體太極晨練、與社區民眾交流,探究古今科技技術如何共生,傳統道家的養生方法和當代生活的互相融合。我們開始思考,數位科技時代的養生方式以及都市公共空間中的各種流動。

Future Tao: Online Inner Scripture
未來道:線上秘笈



lololol.net is an ongoing interpretive manuscript of Taoist-informed experimental practices for mind and body cultivation in contemporary times. Initiated by lololol, the manuscript is collectively written and organically evolving, and includes a decentralized program of exercises and techniques shared as a community for inspirations of healthy living.

Responding to today's increasingly cybernetic lifestyles, the program includes a variety of benefits, including the improvement of circulation between the real and virtual, fitness of expanded consciousness, deeper understanding of our new bodies, and connection between lives of all kind.

Since ancient times, humans have been developing mind and body techniques to expand their material experience and the potential of consciousness. Since the Enlightenment, such efforts have been predominated by the logic of science and western technology. As computer technology is becoming increasingly pervasive in everyday life, human lifestyles are becoming increasingly cybernetic, and our sense of space, time and existence is rapidly changing. In face in these new living conditions, what are new mind and body practices for the purpose of self-cultivation?

The kind of self-cultivation we explore in this project is marked by an excavation of ancient Taoist wisdom re-embodied with contemporary imagination. The manuscript builds upon, but are not limited to, ontological dualism, cosmic technics, mindful consciousness, and active relationship between heaven, man and nature.



lololol.net  是一個關注道思想的身心秘笈,2018年發起,持續發展。此秘笈由集體寫作而成,共同對當代身體技術和修行進行探討和想像。本項目試圖建立一個去中心化的修行分享模式,定期推出實驗性運動和修行技巧,尋找合適當代養身的生活方法。

人類自古以來執著於研發身體和感知的技術,以拓展物質世界和意識的潛能。這項工程自啟蒙時代後主要由科學技術所主導,隨著科技產品的普及化,人類越來越趨近生化人的存在狀態,而我們對時間、空間、和存在的理解也隨之改變。面對新的生存環境和身體條件,人類如何找到適合這個世代的身心調和方法,修煉自我?

以回應現代人的生活狀態,此秘笈提供幾點主要療效:虛實間的良好循環、擴大意識的體能訓練、積極維持天地人間的身心聯繫。

Future Tao: City Park
未來道:實景遊園



lololol’s Future Tao: City Parks is a guided walk and workout in the park for experimental mind and body exercises. Encountering the designed landscape, its original intentions and the eventual cultures that have sprouted upon its framework, we consider the park as a distinct ontology of contemporary lifestyle.

The project draws from lololol’s archive of self-cultivation techniques contributed by a vast group of thinkers and creators. These techniques were originally shared in an online format as a collective script.

We seek to open up questions about what it means to be healthy and fit today in today's technological age.



lololol的《未來道:實景遊園》是在當地公園內進行集體的引導步行和鍛煉,目的是進行實驗性的身心修行。 我們將公園視為現代生活方式的獨特空間。景觀.....該項目取材於lololol的超個體當代修行檔案庫,該項目由大量的思想家和創造者提供。 這些技術最初以線上格式作為集體共享秘笈。
