"Form itself is emptiness, emptiness itself form.
No eyes, no ears, no nose, no tongue, no body, no mind;
No sight, no sound, no smell, no taste, no touch, no object of mind;
Neither old age and death, nor extinction of old age and death;
No suffering, no cause, no cessation, no path;
No knowledge and no attainment.
With nothing to attain, a bodhisattva relies on prajna parami ta,
and thus the mind is without hindrance.
Without hindrance, there is no fear."


Heart Sutra (details)

It was discovered in the 18th century that diamond is an allotropic modification of carbon. The same element is thus transformed into a common, opaque and soft substance under certain conditions and into a rare, clear and hard substance under other conditions.

For my series 'Elements', I was interested in this act of creation, which is able to create perfect and pure forms from the same element, simply by choice and arrangement.
