Aside from the three digital collages, this is my first creation after completing my recent project on thinking big. After the challenge of translating certain concepts into artworks, I have opted to design something simple. I wanted to build upon characters that I have already used to make longer words. This follows from my current learning of the written language where the characters are very much like building blocks.
Opting for something simple, I actually wanted to use the word for simplicity itself but this unfortunately also means naive. So I’ve gone for a Buddhist word meaning deep meditation. The first character here is called chan and means peace of mind as I used in the thinking big project. The second is called nuo and denotes religious origin.
