The Creation and Destruction of Impermanence

Mixed Media on Paper
I started getting an idea for a new piece during a recent Meditation Retreat, spending 9 days alone, sitting in Zazen (Shikantaza) for 8 hours a day, and only reading one text, The Lotus Sutra. I was fascinated with the similarity between rings of a tree and the rings of a clock, and came up with this.
I combine elements from various clocks and watches, as well as the Astronomical Clock housed in St. Catherine Cathedral, in G'dansk, Poland, calculated and constructed in the 14th Century CE.
