無 is “mu”: Nothing, emptiness, the void where forces of earth, wind, fire and water interact. 無 is no rules, non-definition, an allowance from which art can arise. Art arises from chaos into content, from blank space into form, from emptiness into personal and social communication. Within “nothing” there is all.
