Photograph of Roberto Chabet's installation 10,000 Paintings I Must Paint Before I Die. The installation is composed of hundreds of red, yellow, blue, black, and white canvasses attached onto clipboards and installed on a grid on the walls, and a neon sign that reads '10000 Paintings I Must Paint Before I Die'. The neon text refers to the title of a guide book on Art History, and the Buddhist concept of '10,000 Things', which denotes the sum of all essences and the dynamic interconnection, simultaneous unity and diversity of everything in the universe. The work was exhibited in Magnet Gallery, Katipunan from 14 April - 7 May 2009.
