“輪迴”(wheel of  life  / Samsara) 是佛教核心的生命觀和宇宙觀,指意識在 因果、生死、以致六道(天、人、修羅、畜生、餓鬼、地獄)中無盡的循環轉世,不斷的轉換形態,不到“涅槃”(Nirvana),無法超脫種種煩惱、痛苦、生死、輪迴。

作品中借用“輪迴”的概念,描述我們日常生活中,大量充斥的無數訊息、影像,快速生產複製傳遞,串聯出一個龐大的資訊輪迴,意識彷彿無時無刻深陷其中,難以擺脫。

環形的空間中,有多組攝影機及投影機相互串聯,攝影機拍攝投影畫面,再傳送到另一個投影畫面播出,連結構築成一個龐大的回朔(Feedback)系統,觀眾進入空間,身體的影像立即被拍攝、複製、傳播,身處整個輪迴之中。


Wheel of life / Samsara is the core view of life and cosmology of Buddhism, which refers to the endless cycle of reincarnation and perpetual transformation of consciousness within cause and effect, life and death, and the Six Realms (Heaven, Human, Asura, Animal, Hungry, Hell), without achieving Nirvana and breaking free form all sorts of troubles, pains, life and death, and cycle of existence.

The work borrows the concept of ‘Samsara’ to illustrate the excessive and countless message and images in our daily life, which are rapidly produced, replicated, and spread to weave a massive cycle of information, in which mind and consciousness seem to be trapped endlessly without escaping.

In the circular space, a number of cameras and projectors are interconnected. Cameras capture the images played by one projector; the recorded video is then transmitted to another projector to be broadcasted. The connected cameras and projectors form a massive feedback system. When audiences enter the space, they will be physically inside the cycle as their images are immediately captured, reproduced, and broadcasted.
