Abstract

My body of work, “Spiritual Union,” is an exploration of artistic ideas contrasted with approaches to scientific technology. I investigate diverse physical phenomena and media and examine symbolic structures to express concepts of transcendence and spirituality in Buddhism. On deep levels, I have observed the natural beauty, richness, and complexity of organic forms. This has led to exploration and experimentation in the area where the boundaries between the artistic and the scientific fields converge. Employing an interdisciplinary approach that includes art and science, I have expressed the spiritual meaning of Buddhist lotus motifs and created a record of my own journey of understanding.
