OVERVIEW In calling this project her love letter to Tibet, Marissa Roth shares her deepest creative vision in a most personal and visually satisfying way. Venturing to Tibet in 2007 and 2010, she created this poetic ethnographic study using Kodachrome film. This transparency film, which no longer exists, was known as the “black & white” of color film, as its dramatic highlights and shadows were punctuated by lush tones of red and other saturated warm hues. While sequencing the 72 images for Infinite Light Roth would continually walk around the tall boards containing her work-in-progress, completing the series of photographs that would unfurl in the colors of the Tibetan prayer flags. Over the 5 months that it took her to finish this portion of the project, she realized that she was also creating a kind of visual walking meditation.In Buddhism, a walking meditation is a form of active meditation where, through mindfulness and awareness, the experience of walking becomes the focus. As an exhibition, Infinite Light will be installed as a continuous visual line of images leading viewers through the exhibit in a clockwise direction. The single framed photographs will be closely spaced without the interruption of captions, in order for viewers to just look at the images at their own meditative pace.
