A Window into Presence
Through meditation, we try to become the awareness behind our thoughts, emotions, or sense perceptions. We put aside the past and future, and focus entirely on the present moment, we enter a state of presence. A powerful phenomena occurs when we find ourselves surrounded in nature. It can anchor us into that state of presence, even if we haven’t practised meditation before. Through backlit Duratrans prints, and audio recorded on location, this work aims to provide its audience a glimpse into what that state of presence in nature can be like. This crisis has presented us with an opportunity to explore the deep states of presence that are available to us, if we only give ourselves space to experience it.
