This is part of a series of work that I am developing, Sky Mantra, Earth Mantra, and Sea Mantra, where I write the Heart Sutra onto a mirror reflecting changes in various environments. I try to capture the movements in the clouds, in the mountains, and in the sea. The element of the ephemeral found in nature reflect the core teaching of the Heart Sutra – emptiness.
