Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What does it mean that we are constantly changing? How do people confront ideas like death and change? Asked to contribute to an exhibit celebrating the work of the Dalai Lama, multimedia artists David and Hi-Jin Hodge interviewed over a hundred people about impermanence and change in their lives. Their subjects ranged from philosophers, gardeners, economists, spiritual leaders, doctors, and patients. The result was incredibly moving. The Hodges's installation consisted of a large circular arrangement of mounted iPods on which the interviews played simultaneously, each on its own screen. Now this unique record has been made available for a wider audience; it includes both a book and a DVD so that the interviews can be viewed as they were seen in the original exhibit. Though impermanence is a central Buddhist concept, it's also a universal concern. We all grow up, change, and eventually pass into another state. Impermanence: Embracing Change provides a range of voices both profound and heartwarming that address these questions.

Book News Annotation:

Artists, designers, and filmmakers David and Hi-Jin Hodge contributed an installation piece as part of an exhibit currently touring the US and the world celebrating the life and work of the Dalai Lama. They interviewed over 100 people from diverse walks of life in 25 countries on the central Buddhist concept of impermanence and how it affects people. The installation comprised a circle of iPods playing the interviews. The volume contains black-and-white stills and brief excerpts; the accompanying video disk contains a 75-minute looping program recreating the original installation.

Synopsis:

David and Hi-Jin Hodge interviewed 120 people about their experience of impermanence. The subjects spoke with dignity and candor; the edited films became a major multimedia installation in an art exhibit. Like the crowds gathered around the Hodges' work, those experiencing their book and DVD will come away with a poignant, living sense of impermanence; the need to let go, learn to value and cherish the present, and realize how much we all share.
