enso series

“If one knows the Constant,
One can understand and embrace all.”

-Tao Te Ching, 16

The photographs and stop-motion video in this series were the result of a train ride in 2014 on Baltimore’s light rail from the county to the city, and feature circular cracks in the window, which frame the surroundings.

A traditional enso is a Zen Buddhist painted ink circle, an expression of the interrelation of all things. As an enso, this glass circle holds the total everything. These images are explore the intermingling of inclusion, brokenness, interdependence, and wholeness, specific to this particular place. They implore us to see that this is the world we live in.
