A woman sits, cross-legged, on a rock, her eyes closed. She is outdoors, in the garden. She is meditating, and chants, ommmmmmmmmm. Wasps fly about her, land on her, fly about again. The buzzing of the wasps overlaps with the om chant of the woman, linking the two elements: the still meditation of the woman, and the active movement and noise of the wasps. The woman continues meditating. The wasps continue to swarm. Ommmmmmmmmmm.

Tension builds. Are the wasps and the woman at one? Are the wasps metaphorical, and the reason why the woman is meditating? Are the wasps meditating too? ‘meditating with wasps’ offers the viewer absurd, profound, and allegorical possibilities.
