Devour

'They devour that by which they themselves wish to be devoured.'
from the book, Bubbles, by Peter Sloterdijk

This is my contribution to #LWArtChallenge, by @LoneWick_ , where we create some art inspired by the phrase. Thank you LoneWick for the challenge!

The creative prompt made me think immediately of parasites, some of which get ingested in order to then devour their host from within. Applying conceptual simplification leads to the idea of self-parasitism where host and parasite are one and the same.

One visual metaphor for this is the Ouroboros - the serpent that eats its own tail. For this project I've tried to merge an abstract version of Ouroboros with the Japanese symbol of ensō. In Zen Buddhism, ensō represents the circle of enlightenment, the void, and the infinite nature of existence. It is often depicted as an incomplete circle, symbolizing the idea that imperfection is an essential part of existence and perfection. Drawing ensō is a practice of spiritual reflection, self-expression, and mindfulness. It often reflects the state of the artist's mind at the moment of creation.

Some compositions also show nested symbols of alternating colors. This, together with the broken circle which suggests a mouth, illustrates the phrase in another manner.
