Abstract [sv]

I detta arbete illustrerar jag den buddhistiska tanke som kallas pratityasamutpada, som saknar svensk översättning men på engelska kallas dependent origination och handlar om att alla fenomen uppkommit på grund av andra fenomen. För detta ritar jag på frihand i Photoshop ett flertal svarta cirklar med låg opacitet som jag placerar delvis omlott. Där cirklarna överlappar skapas en ny cirkel, som alltså uppkommit av andra cirklar. Jag prövar mig fram genom att ändra cirklarnas bredd, opacitet och antal. Därefter gör jag om det hela i Illustrator, men med cirklar ritade med cirkelfunktionen snarare än på frihand. Detta prövar jag sedan med cirklar i olika färger som är både medvetet och slumpmässigt utvalda. Jag kommer fram till att de svarta cirklarna som ritats i Illustrator var de som bäst uppnådde mitt mål. Jag märker att själva arbetsprocessen kan illustrera flera andra buddhistiska tankar, vilket jag gör under den slutgiltiga utställningen med hjälp av work-in-progress-bilder och förklarande texter som jag skriver ut och hänger upp, och genom att själv närvara och förklara.

Abstract [en]

In this paper I illustrate the Buddhist concept of pratityasamutpada or dependent origination, the notion that all phenomena have arisen from other phenomena. For this I use Photoshop to freehand-draw a number of black low-opacity circles which I place on top of one another, partly overlapping. Where the circles overlap, a new circle is formed that’s arisen from the other circles. I’m testing out different variations by varying the circles’ opacity, width and number. After that, I re-do it all in Illustrator, but rather than drawing the circles free-hand I use the circle function. I then experiment with changing the colors of the circles, trying both deliberately and randomly chosen colors. Afterwards I conclude that the black Illustrator circles best fit my goals. While working I discover that the work process itself can be said to illustrate several other Buddhist notions; during the final exhibition I show these using printed-out copies of the images and of explanatory texts, as well as by being there in person to explain my design.
