Entry point of project – SAMSARA

I’m interested in SAMSARA–the transmigration of soul.The repeated cycles of birth,life,death and rebirth,are full of philosophical.The explanation of the transmigration in the dictionary is that “the indefinitely repeated cycles of birth, misery and death caused by of karma.” In the Buddhism all lives are believed to be reincarnation upon death. While in the book ‘The Tibetan Book of Dead’, brightness is regarded as the essence of life. If there is no awakening, life will be recycled by the life and death. The Hindu believes that every life will be reincarnated. The good and evil will end up in the retribution. There is no end to such recycle.Nowadays, some scientists also proposed the theory of soul transmigration through experiments and research.

Actually,in our life,there are full of this repeated cycle.Such as the cycle of fashion,the hottest trends is birth,life,disappear and rebirth,just like the transmigration of soul.Such as art,those art forms also experience their rise and fall,rebirth and innovation.This phenomenon is interesting.Either our souls or objects,issues in the world,they will have their transmigration.

In my opinion, I am convinced the existence of the transmigration of souls like a string of pearls. Each pearl is a life which is linked with another one. This pearl empowers next one just like the previous life propels the next life. The string linking pearls is just like the transmigration. I think it is the tool for the continuation and growth of souls. The progress and direction of the transmigration each time would be influenced by Karma of all lives.

I keen on use SAMSARA as the entry point of project.Temporarily, I got some ideas, i want to make a installation combine with video,audiences can interact with this installation.Once an audience interacts with the installation, their actions and interactions will create some thing or phenomenon on the installation.Then when the next audience interact with the installation,their actions and interactions will compound previous audience’s creation and create a new thing.

This is an abstract idea,and i need to do more research to further it.



  1. Hey!!!

    If your interested in cycles maybe look into the life cycles of plants and insects with metamorphosis being a focal point. Many species such as the plasmodium sp or the hydrozoan obelia reproduce through both sexual and asexual reproduction… The diagrams are cool. Also there is a Rythum known as the circadian rhythm which dictates to everything on earth the rhythm in which they live, the flowering of plants, our sleeping patterns! Pyerdophyta are a group of ferns one of the first plant forms to inhabit the earth along with mosses the Bryophyta, there life cycles are also interesting. Here is an example http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jcWYAnmm-QE
