Through the “Medicine Buddha” project, I have been exploring the possibility of using a 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. I will utilize 16mm film loops and analog projectors combining traditional and direct filmmaking techniques to explore optical sound, language, and the relationship between space and time. (This project is still a work in progress)
Title: Medicine Buddha (experiment version)
Medium: 16 mm film, analog film projector, vintage onion skin paper
