Sea Mantra

Video with sound, 17min Black ink on mirror 2009Commissioned by Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation, Sydney


This is part of a series of work that I have completed, Sky Mantra, Earth Mantra, and Sea Mantra where I write the Heart Sutra onto a mirror reflecting changes in various environments. I try to capture the movements in the clouds, which are different from the movements in the mountains, and from water. The changes reflect on the core teaching of the Heart Sutra – emptiness.
