0 = 10,000The Age of Dharma Decline will go on for 10,000 years
Material is immortal
Back and forth in Cycle
After all is Nirvana
From 0 to 1 constitute the digital (code) world and its existence is no longer a topic to be astonished by. But the process from 0 to 1 then To 0, is also similar to the process from nothing to exist and from exist to nothing in Buddhism believes. Material can be immortal energy, but Nirvana Will come in the end, no matter in the Age of Dharma Decline or in the era of globalization. We are experiencing the process of from 0 to 1 and then from 1-0.
The project seeks to establish the buyer-seller relationship in the contemporary society, and place this relationship in an unpredictable time space. Nevertheless, this time space is set a starting point from the beginning of Christianity. By taking the Buddhist concept of The Age of Dharma Decline as a lead composes the artworks on Internet. This derives from two issues that I have been concerned with. One is the theory of the origin of time and the methods to define the notion of time from different religions, such as theology, Buddhism, etc. Another issue is the short-lived contemporary life in the context of history and archeology perspective. Following these two leads, the online works will present a micro-time of rapid changes in the world. From the conceptual level, I hope to absorb this fleeting feeling in a length of Ten thousand years. According to the Buddhist thinking and the balance theory: ‘Virtual is reality, reality is virtual'. It is not hard to understand why 0 equal to 10000.
This proposition not only has a scientific perception, but also has the Buddhist view of the world.
