A Split Second of Eternity

A Split Second of Eternity is a large scale mixed-reality installation consist of a octatych and two interactive projections utilizing 3D motion control technology. The octatych includes eight oil paintings on linen. Each of the oil painting is 4 1/2 feet wide, 16 feet tall, and displayed as a scroll suspended from the ceiling. This installation will be debut in its entirety in June, 2018, at the Art Center at National Central University, Taiwan.

On view at the _NewExhibition exhibition is a reconfigured piece from the installation, A Split Second of Eternity: Dharmachakra Mudra. To resurrect the virtual rose back to life, the viewer has to perform a dharmachakra mudra—bring the tips of the thumb and index fingers together to form a circle and keep the remaining three fingers stretched. In Buddhism, dharmachakra mudra is considered a representation of Buddha’s teachings about the cosmic order from the heart, which sets into motion the wheel of dharma.
