In The Truths of Origin, Tsangsey gives visual form to her understanding of life’s uncertainty and impermanence. According to Buddhist philosophy, the world is composed of Five Great Elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Wind and Space, in which an imbalance of elements causes change. The installation has four components representing earth, fire, water and wind; space is represented by the corner space itself. In front of each piece are small samples of earth, incense ashes, water and air from Tibet.
