Beautiful film! Yes, a wonderful question.
I make cut and paste mandalas. They are, definitely, meditations for me, They are exercises in letting go because they are never perfect. It is always a surprise to see the results. I journal on the back of them or put inspirations that have come my way at the time. Art is a gateway into beauty and spaciousness. My name for God is MOPS, MYSTERY, ONENESS, PRESENCE, SPACIOUSNESS. It is so wonderful to have the means to BE at my finger tips.
A lovely little film with great style. I did find it unsatisfying not to see the piece she was working on with the torch, however. A tease unfulfilled. There's teaching in that, no doubt, but is that subtle point one that the filmmakers intended?
I think it was shown, it was briefly shown in a pan shot, the canvas on the wall....and I agree a lovely little film....
Miya's work is beautiful! As an artist that works with fibre (a lot softer than metal) :) I understand very well what Miya is saying. My work is mindfulness and openness....meditation in motion :). I am also very grateful to see a short on an artist - thank you so much!
As an artist who practices Buddhism I understand Miya's work ethic. We are stewards of humanity's cultural heritage.
She ends with the question all of us should be asking. Beautiful reflections.
