The Second Buddha: Master of Time
Exhibition opening February 2 at the Rubin Museum of Art
In 2018, the Rubin Museum of Art is dedicating its galleries, lecture halls, and theaters to a year-long exploration of “The Future.” Kicking off the year is The Second Buddha: Master of Time, an exhibit that tells the story of Padmasambhava, the Lotus Born, who is believed to have played a major role in converting the land and people of Tibet to Buddhism.
A few months ago, Trollbäck was asked to create a short animated film for the exhibition, in which we present three different points of view on the understanding of time. Over the next year, our piece will sit among 41 other works of art from the 13th to 20th centuries, all activated by interactive technology, augmented reality, and various live performances.
Central to the museum’s exhibition are themes of the interconnected nature of past and future, the power of human emotions, transformation, impermanence, and fluid notions of time.
If you’re in the city, we recommend you catch it.
