"Nothingness" 2007

*–³ mu (nothingness)
When you are hungry, everything you eat is delicious.
When you have everything, nothing is precious.
To achive "nothingness" is to undergo a complete change.
To return to our origins, to a state of selflessness.
*Why circle?
Paper from trees and return the paper to the trees and the earth. "It full circle"
*Why three circles?
The circles of trees are like ripples on water, forever going outward.

Meillä on velvollisuus suojella planeettaa ja säilyttää elämä.
Fumico kirjoitti japaniksi Nothingness parille kymmenelle riisipaperille, jotka hän kiinnitti kiviin ja puihin. Riisipaperi työt on kiinnitetty vehnäjauholiisterillä maastoon.
