Still images from Flaming Spirits, active meditation practices. I was repeating the gestures for the drawings over and over - drawing after drawing - until I had the impulse to move like the lines traced by my gestures. With my body I am drawing a motion that could be compared to the way in which fire moves, to the energy of heat. When I think about this action I think about how I transpire the spirit of heat. These are meditations. I understand meditation as a practice in which one synchronizes body, mind, and breath. In these documented actions the activity of drawing is the mediator of the synchronization and the drawing becomes the landmark of this activity.
