SUMMARY

如Ru - Suchness Thusness

如Ru is a simple Chinese word with deep and complicated meaning, and translates into “ Suchness or Thusness” in Zen thinking. This work merges the unique spirit and method of Western Glass blowing technique and Eastern Calligraphy, and the Zen thought of Suchness and Thusness. It presents the idea of living in the ‘now’. In this work I present the quiet moment of now in the hot and sweating environment of glass blowing, by writing Chinese character- 如onto hot glass. Each moment is unique and can’t be duplicated, just as it is- Ru Ru Ru Ru Ru.
