Frame from the video “Beyond the form”, 2012 © Irina Gabiani
Actor: Nicole Adorno
Voice: Nicole Adorno
Editing: David Gabriel
Text: Lao Zi
In this video Irina Gabiani uses the poem of Rumi:
Look, it cannot be seen – it is beyond form.
Listen, it cannot be heard – it is beyond sound.
Grasp, it cannot be held – It is intangible.
These three are indefinable, they are one.
From above it is not bright;
From below it is not dark:
Unbroken thread beyond description.
It returns to nothingness.
Form of the formless,
Image of the imageless,
It is called indefinable, and beyond imagination.
Stand before it – there is no beginning.
Follow it, and there is no end.
