cm. Collection of Reinhart Frais, Bangkok.
Calming the body (kaya) and mind (citta) through mindfulness-the
awareness of breathing in and out (ãnãpanasati) -is central
to traditional healing.
[For Nature's Breath: Arokhayasala, I wanted] viewers to cleanse and cure
the mind in order to experience the condition of relaxation and mindfulness.
The atmosphere is similar to monasteries, temples, or hospitals of mindfulness
(sati). Meditation, space, border, sound, material, and aroma in surrounding
space of the work are the essence that arouse viewer's perception. - Montien
