This article is an enquiry into the meditative and unconscious processes of the mind. In critical thought there appears to be a gap where the art object has been elevated above the artist process. What has been lost is a study into the psychoanalytic, creative and meditative qualities of both written and creative systems. This article draws from theories of meditative practice, as well as contemporary practitioners including Marina Abramović and Zhang Huan. The aims of this study are to augment process, lead discussion and create discourse in the context of meditative, performative and immaterial dialogues.
