This three-channel video installation asks what will we see and hear in heaven? Taking the Tibetan Book of the Dead as his inspiration, Hudson presents the three stages of Death in Buddhist theology: the first is the physical throes of death; the second is spiritual enlightenment; the third is rebirth. Made in collaboration with AT&T Natural Voices (TM) the work arrives from research on readings from the Tibetan book of the dead and the intonations, tones and timing that a reading of the book requires. The work is designed to facilitate a liminal space for contemplation.
