    Human connections: MEDITATION movie project: progress
    Project: Branding the Species
    After studying a book called, "Buddha Mind in Contemporary
    Art" by Jacquelynn Bass(which is the book recommended by our Prof.Mendez),
    I started to think in a more advanced way. I truly think 'Mediation' is about having an endurance and patience, and it can be only achieved when I truly meditate.
    Therefore, I am in process of creating a movie while I meditate. Rather than just focusing on each of my body parts, I decided to go with the whole body, and introduce different body parts within the movie. During the editing of the final movie, I will be introducing different experiments and sound effects as well. My actual meditation lasted ranging 10 minutes to an hour and 7 minutes long, and movie clips are just a part of them. Below are some of the picture examples from my mediation:



    Choice of clothing and props
    In my movie, I decided to wear a red Indian cloth over my shoulder. In this case, the color red symbolizes passion and heat. Human bodies have its own warmth(temperature) and I wanted to show show a felling of warmth to the audience. I wanted to show both my skin and parts of my body covered in clothes to see different effects, especially the way I breath. Also, after doing some research in Buddhism, I decided to use some props to help me get into the mood. I believe it helps visually to interpret what is going on, in terms of meditation.
