"Wisdom tells me I am nothing; love tells me I am everything. Between the two my life flows." --From I am That, Dialogues of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. Sometimes we spontaneously feel love - through the kind words of someone else, a smile, or admiration for someone's selfless actions. How can we cultivate such thoughts deliberately and consistently? Buddhists meditate in order to attain these states reliably. Meditation's not for everyone. This installation is an attempt to turn a meditative thought process into a projected reality embodying the Buddhist notion of spontaneous love.
