In The Limitless, The Absolute is an artistic interpretation of the Bagua八卦; the eight Taoist trigrams that represent the principles of reality as organic, emotive and experiential environments. The correspondences between the eight interlocking concepts of the Bagua are used in Taoist cosmology to interpret and contemplate reality and existence. The patterns formed as the trigrams interrelate provide the conceptual logics used by the artist to create delicate, complex, shifting environments resembling ecosystems.
