Seijaku, tranquility in the midst of daily turmoil. It isn’t an escape from the world that surrounds us. Rather, it is the seeking of serenity in the midst of activity; the finding of true inner quiet as the world churns around us.
I’ve always been fascinated by the dichotomy between order and chaos— especially in today’s constant barrage of media and technology. The use of distorted and random binary code in this series are symbols of the tumult from which we move toward peace, order and simplicity.
In Seijaku I suggest the path to serenity can start with a break from the routines of an active life. A move toward order and balance. A way to stillness.
