Digital video, found footage
zen_glitch is an experimental film that explores Buddhist concepts of Saṃsāra as an aimless wandering through the on-going cycle of life, death, and rebirth that characterizes material existence. Drawing from visual sources such as glitched videogames, vintage educational films and documentaries, corrupted art historical jpegs, and microscopic video of plants, the film’s structure mirrors Saṃsāra. Just as one moves through mundane life filled with suffering and joy, zen_glitch guides the viewer through an unveiling wormhole that when played in loop, reflects a cycle of sadness and joy, despair and ecstasy.
