Buddhism teaches the value of meditating on 'no-thing-ness' as a way of reaching a state of enlightenment. Staring at a flickering candle 
flame a light source like the moon and the TV screen is a traditional meditation technique, and Paik uses a shared cultural trope that speaks to people beyond geographic boundaries.
