SoulscapeNational Museum of Contemporary Art

To the eyes of the West, the world is a drama, a progress through war and ruin and disaster to triumph and some promised land. This last hundred years, the world has thought technology would be the weapon for man's ultimate triumph over nature. Now suddenly, so many are not so sure. To the eyes of the East, the world is an illusion — the Buddha said it, and the Brahmins also for nearly a thousand years before — an illusion of beauty and pain, but illusion only, finally, always.
