"What is the sound of one hand clapping?"
"Wind, flag, mind moves.
The same understanding.
When the mouth opens
All are wrong."
A short experimental docu-voodle by moi capturing particular moments of reiterative but not redundant duration happening on the way in and out of one of Japans most known places of possible providers for direct intuitiv insights. Savings and rituals are well preserved in the land of the rising sun, yet, contrary to western civilisation, kept alive, build on and by no means conserved. See about four minutes of a total of 2 hours of footage (on the same issue) taken by moi and bk at the Ryoan-ji temple in Kyoto, Japan - 2008.03.11, and enjoy the zen-like sound-coulisse 'catch and release' (excerpt) by ccmixter artemisstrong.
