'Shunyata' is Sanskrit terminology referring to an absence of ego conceptualization, or emptiness in the absence of thought. At the boundary to the Polar Eternities, with my back towards Tahiti, a Shunyatan wind blows towards the frozen infinite, the great void, the emptiness that subconsciously connects all life, the dark ocean common connecting the light of a ship far out in the dark sea to the light of its home port. My Tahitian self disintegrates. Shunyatan Flow is comprised of 3D scans of Arctic ice acquired during my recent Svalbard residency, scans of the back of my body, and an image acquired during the residency.
