Each of the artworks is inspired by man’s pursuit of the various forms of the material, from the consumption of luxury to the quest for eternality. The artworks attempts take a balanced and multi-faceted approach in deliberating man’s relationship with the material. As much as Buddhism espouses the detachment of the material, the material is the also the expression of the presence. Perhaps, the difference lies in the awareness of the present, the key lies in the awakening.
