Virtual Thangka


The "Virtual Thangka" was part of a stage design for His Holiness the Dalai Lama's teachings at the Alliant Energy Center , sponsored by the Deer Park Buddhist Center in Madison , WI on May 2-4, 2007.


Soulful Media filmed and edited a 20 minute Buddhist music video in collaboration with producer, artistic director, and stage designer, Ven. Lhundub Daychen. The video was digitally projected onto a screen inside a large fabric frame above the stage, creating a virtual religious image instead of the traditionally painted or appliqued one. It was screened each day in a continuous loop, prior to His Holiness the Dalai Lama's arrival and teachings, for an audience of about 4000 people.
