Artist's Statement:
Zen Beacon was inspired by a pagoda in a secluded, peaceful spot perfect for meditation. The children’s tricycle seat in its center reminds me of the effortless mobility and empowerment I felt as a child gliding along a trike. That first, self-guided transport is a similar feeling to the joy I feel during meditation. While it isn’t physically possible to sit on that little token of a seat, through imagination or meditation, it is possible to arrive. Zen Beacon is my ambassador, radiating my token of peace beyond the reach of my physical body.
