Dawoon Park(1991, KR) has researched and materialised media art projects in the interest of postphenomenology, transhumanism and posthumanism. She aims for catching glimpses of increasingly complex phenomena in between material and immaterial domains and encodes them into the realm of the legible and visible.

Buddha of Capitalism

Buddha is not a god or truth, but a medium for delivering Buddhism to living beings and removing their suffering. Humans are neither god nor truth, but a medium for delivering capitalism to living beings, making them suffer whilst suffering from it.

The waves in the water bowl are connected to an largest American stock market index. If the market moves, the water starts moving. If the trading stops, the water stands still.

In Buddhist meditation, the calm sea is like a calm mind. When the sea is calm one can see through it, but in its rough state, nothing on the surface can be seen. The Mantra of Light is placed at the highest point in the house in the sense that the Buddha's teaching illuminates all living things.

Can the waves mirror the Buddha's teachings above it? Can we reach nirvana under capitalism?
