What happens during Meditation? What is an Ecstatic State of Consciousness? Is Silence the pathway to Truth?

A Black Flower, representing the connection to Actual Reality, is placed in an artificial, surreal environment, while it breathes like a human being engaged and raptured in meditation.

Its folds are obtained using a changing displacement map, to give it a sense of dynamism, like a symbol of the ever-changing Nature of Things.

This artwork is strongly connected to Buddhist Meditation known as Ānāpānasati (meaning mindfulness obtained through breathing), as a way to break the barriers of Time and Space and reach an Ecstatic State of Consciousness, characterised by total obliviousness of ones surroundings and an expanded interior Mental and Spiritual awareness.
