The Way to Be Empty, 1

“The book is based on the idea of 108, a significant number in Buddhism. The number is created with a
different combination of fourteen words. Each combination constitutes one of the 108 Buddhist ‘desires.’
My working process is a meditation, as is the experience I want to give to the reader. As readers turn the
pages, they participate in that meditation, similar to the Buddhist practice. The path of piled desires gets smaller and smaller until finally the reader reaches the emptiness at the end of the path, the last page.”
