© Ké Su Tharr, art is within conditionality
Statement: Things (sense objects) the artist perceives conditions his or her mind and body. The result is that s/he makes an artwork, which, as a visual sense object, conditions the viewer's mind and body. This process of conditionality has no end. Even this piece is the product of such conditionality.
