The second stage of enlightenment gives you the sensation of feeling apart of yourself and everything around you. You feel a deep connection with every object and individual in the world. The divides between you and the world disappear. You are no longer an individual, you are not separate from anything. You are one, You are now apart of something bigger but yet you want to explore it further.
In order to capture the essences of the second stage of enlightenment I have created a cloud like “void” structure, symbolic of the mind and sole. The colour as well as the use of texture represents every object and individual as they unite together. The merging of different ideas and different groups of people, as they descend into nothingness. The cutting process was done by holding the foam core in the air, giving it rough spontaneous look. They hang alone, separated, although trying to bring themselves closer. What is the space between them… Is it nothing or is it everything. The use of a void as a visual representation into nothingness.
