Students examine Mayumi Amada’s “A Blip in Eternity,” made from cut-out pieces of plastic tarp, during Wednesday’s opening of Amada’s “Mortality in Eternity” exhibit at Fort Lewis College. “When we think the eternal flow of time, our life must be like a blip,” Amada wrote of the piece. “I believe that accepting this reality and reminding it all the time will help think how we should use the limited time to fulfill our life.” The shadow of this piece creates another doily on the floor and the wall.

Mayumi Amada’s “Floating/Ukiyo,” made from plastic bottles and monofilament, is part of the Japanese visiting artist’s exhibit “Mortality in Eternity” at the Fort Lewis College Art Gallery. “On the surface of a pool, flowers are floating with peaceful spiral movements, and the shadow of the flowers is being cast on the riverbed,” she wrote. “I hope our descendants also can see the same scenery in nature for several hundreds or thousands of years.”
