The Zen Gardener
1998
The Zen Gardener is a combination of a video and an installation. The video is a home movie-style documentary about a young medical student forced to live at home with his parents. The student has created a completely homemade life-sized Zen garden in his parent's living room, to correspond to his very homemade Zen ideology, which he spouts continuously throughout the ten-minute video. In the course of the documentary one sees his basement workshop where all of the elements of the garden are carved from foam and papier mache.
