A photoseries exploring negative space; Zettai Mu focuses the lens of a large format camera on the microscopic head of a pin to facilitate the creation of a chance, abstract image that comes into blossom out of the negative space around it.

Both the process and the resultant images function as an analogy of the meditative process; the pin heads take on the role of objects of ‘ma’; microscopic elements of the positive which when focused upon allow for the nothing (‘mu’) which surrounds them to become engaging abstract forms in the same way that the meditative process grants access to void through the focusing of the mind on a positive element that is insignificant like the binary of the breath.
