experiment: data complex 5 | a returning place | video art


The journey to silence as visited through “A Returning Place”. Often the road to our true essence is discovered through the meditative path of silence. In that silence, we navigate the past; leaving it behind. We dismiss the anxiety of an uncertain future; freeing us from our thoughts. It is our hope that we find the journey without moving, The one that takes us on the road inward: The present moment, and the freedom through enlightenment to see things as they really are.

This video captures some of the elements of natural and man-made silence: Silent films, Space, singularity, and the journey one takes alone … in this thing called life.

  1. I love how the video conveys the images that randomly travel through the mind. Silence. I live in it.

    • Thanks Linda. I uploaded another version of the video. The older version contained a lot of pixels in the video. The result of the wrong format. This version has a cleaner look to it. On the idea of living in silence, there are so many ways to be a part of it, and for it to manifest all around you.
