The Sims is a simulation in reflection, where a person becomes a character of a famous video game.
The color of the crystal above the head informs that in the life of the character all the basic needs are met, i.e. he is alive. But at the same time, this sign associates us with involvement in someone's game, in which everything has already been decided and chosen for us: our path, how we look, and where we will go.
Wellness practices alienate a person from his own body, as the user conducts operations with it as with a commodity and an object of exchange. The body is not used to experience this world, but is manipulated by it - like in a video game.
