To me, art is more like meditation than a making of things. It starts with consciousness, and in grounding that consciousness into the physical, art is created. In this way, anything can be art.

I'd like to see less division between art and everything else. For an enlightened person, there is no more division between meditation and everything else, because everything becomes meditation. So the more enlightened we become, the less we have art and everything else, and the more everything becomes art.

This is the world where I'd like to live. So, I must start here and now, with myself.
