Enigma of Space, 2011
Enigma of Space is a colourful photographic contemplation on space and a Zen Buddhist notion of emptiness. The project was primarily inspired by Japanese zenga paintings of circles called Enso. The Enso circle represents on one level the ultimate emptiness and on another level its absolute wholeness. The Enso circle is a symbol of the cyclical nature of existence and a visual manifestation of a koan from the Heart Sutra: "Form is Emptiness and the very Emptiness is Form; Emptiness does not differ from Form, Form does not differ from Emptiness, whatever is Emptiness, that is Form".
