Meditation 1.1 (Thusness, Elseness; Omnipresent)
2012
Pen and Ink on Paper
14x14"
The realm of religion is pushing beyond traditional metaphysics. No longer are there clear distinctions between outer and inner, relative and absolute, object-hood and nothingness, secular and spiritual. Conventional cosmological hierarchies lose their foothold in reality, as even “reality” itself falters as an authority. When meditating upon this mandala, the viewer can only truly complete the prayer by pulling out a smartphone and scanning it, being transported into the realm of cyber-space, where material and immaterial are one. The QR code in this particular mandala sends the viewer to a random website, different every time it's scanned.
