Ousia/ A Black Substance
Publisher : Artimediair

The Story Behind This Book
The concept developed in my mind while travelling through Europe and India with the project “Show Your Hope”. What would I do with thousands and thousands of images taken during the journey? As I pondered over this idea of ‘A Black Substance’ I read some Western philosophy. My curiosity and interest grew in a wide range of subjects. Since I’ve been writing poems, painting, drawing and sculpting, I realized that I’ve been a very meditative person all my life. Actually, I lived my life ignoring some of the facts and practices involved in modern-day meditation. But I focused on various subjects that have occupied me over the years and imaginatively pursued their development. I found some way of working with images and produced the visuals that reflect the philosophies I’m concerned with here.
