在《維摩詰經》中的〈不思議品〉提及:「須彌納芥子,芥子納須彌」-在芥子這般微小的果實之中,也能將須彌山上所有的生命包容其中。直觀地來說,桌上放置的容器正代表了一個微小有限的空間範圍,在容器可裝盛的範圍內,投射了許多有機體似的動態影像,這些充滿數位風格的影像正象徵了杯盤中須彌世界裡的無數生命。從另一方面來說,這也關注了「無機實相」與「有機虛像」的矛盾性。In “The Inconceivable Liberation” of the Vimalakirti Sutra, it is written that “Mount Sumeru contains a mustard seed; a mustard seed contains Mount Sumeru.”The life that is on Mount Sumeru is also contained in the tiny mustard seed. Intuitively, the receptacle on the table represents a small, limited amount of space. Moving images of numerous organisms are projected onto objects that can physically be contained within this receptacle. These overtly digitized video images represent the infinite life present in the Mount Sumeru that is the cups and saucers. From a different perspective, this is a comment on the paradox of “inorganic reality” and “organic appearance”.
