The Disappearance of Sparks is the Proof of Connecting the World of Beyond and You
Video projection, joss-paper burners, shattered gold leaf, moving air
Fire is believed to have the power of sublimation in ancestor worship. The spark disappears into the world beyond that transcends time and space. The very moment of transcendence is what worshippers count on. Shattered gold leaf, which is left on the body, indicates the boundary between the deceased and the living, and expresses the different emotions you think about when comparing the living with the deceased. The absence of the deceased does not represent their absolute vanishing, but their lack of presence will continue forever.
