Times Infinity started as a dream of the greatest.
There’s a saying in buddhism, “gone beyond becoming”, that I resonate with deeply. Siddhartha Gautama so eloquently expressed, “My mind has now attained the unformed Nibbâna, and reached the end of every sort of craving.”(http://www.buddhanet.net/e-learning/b…) That liberation is the aim of my life and thus my art.
I wanted to make an artwork so ultimate.
On Welcome to the Capitol –
This chapter is looking at the Earth, in between the Solar System- (Time Keeps Ticking) and the Human Being- (When the Heart Breaks Open). Here, we see Earth from Above (Welcome to the Capitol). Ideally I would’ve made this video span over greater periods of time i.e. Pyramids and Stonehenge, the Grand Canyon and Rocky Mountains, and Ocean shots, but in actuality, and perhaps appropriately so, it tends toward the industrial age and modernity. It is a look at civilization and the Earth over time. Interesting to note that I composed, arranged and named this song, sirens in the intro and all, the day before the storming of the US Capitol in early 2021- an ominous foreshadowing.
