Through the “Medicine Buddha” project, I have been exploring the possibility of using 16mm film installation to address a sense of loss and archive the ephemeral. This project interweaves the Arctic sunlight, Medicine Buddha Sutra, ghosts, an invisible letter, and a termite nest. My intention is to tell the story in between the light and darkness, and between memory and forgetting. (This project is a work in progress)
Title: Medicine Buddha (experiment version)
Medium: 16 mm film, analog film projector, vintage onion skin paper
