I was recently made aware that David and Hi-Jin Hodge graciously donated their time to produce
the CharityFocus video call Be Selfish . . .Be Generous. I was also made aware of
their involvement in creating this piece called The Missing Peace.
They are two of 88 artists in the exhibition.
They created a piece on Impermanence. (the piece with 16 video iPods).
They were also part of the founding committee for the show.
About The Missing Peace:
“The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama
is the result of a collaboration between the Committee of 100 for Tibet
and the Dalai Lama Foundation. We see this project as a unique opportunity
to explore the idea of art as an interpretation of, and a catalyst for, peace.
Through the artist’s work, we also hope to broaden appreciation
for the Dalai Lama and the principles he embodies. The project and exhibition
title is an evocative play on words – peace will always be elusive, or missing, in our world,
but the Dalai Lama consistently shows that dedicating oneself to peace is anything but pointless.
The word ‘portrait’ is used very loosely. Artists were given the freedom to explore
the full life of the Dalai Lama; each ‘portrait’ was the result of personal interpretation.” –
DAVID AND HI-JIN HODGE
“David and Hi-Jin Hodge bring an internationally recognized talent
in design to the discipline of filmmaking. After years of designing products
and corporate communication for clients such as Apple, Sony, Herman Miller and DoCoMo,
they now meld their skills to create documentaries and artistic installations on a diverse range of topics.
In each they seek to create simple, beautiful narratives that bring life and interest to their subjects,
while making a positive impact on organizations and the world.” -from the Missing Peace Project
