Abstract
My body of work, “Spiritual Union,” is an exploration of artistic ideas contrasted

with approaches to scientific technology. I investigate diverse physical phenomena and

media and examine symbolic structures to express concepts of transcendence and

spirituality in Buddhism. On deep levels, I have observed the natural beauty, richness,

and complexity of organic forms. This has led to exploration and experimentation in the

area where the boundaries between the artistic and the scientific fields converge.

Employing an interdisciplinary approach that includes art and science, I have expressed

the spiritual meaning of Buddhist lotus motifs and created a record of my own journey

of understanding.
