108 Global Rice Bowls 壹佰零捌個全球化飯碗 2008

Single-channel digital video with audio. 5:24 min (Videographer: Bob Geile)

Each clang corresponds to each of the 108 bowls, like a bell it pierces through emptiness of phenomena and enlighten the mind into awareness. 108 are the number of beads in a Buddhist rosary, a complete cycle of a prayer. Chinese diaspora diverse voices sing across the globe.
