As long as men live, they tried to find a universal declaration of everything. In Japanese, one of
the words which try to express this feeling is ensō. The ensō symbolizes absolute enlightenment,
strength, elegance, the universe, and mu (the void). It is characterised by a minimalism born of
Japanese aesthetics. In Zen Buddhism, an ensō is a circle that is hand-drawn in one or two uninhibited
brushstrokes to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create. The circle
may be open or closed.
With this series I was searching for some kind of universal declaration of everything too, a blueprint
of life, starting out from my own perspective and trying to find images that have more than
one layer and that can generate different thoughts by who is looking.
