To describe something as 'unconventional' is conventional in itself: such characterisation relies on an "other than" and on what's conventionally 'conventional.'
Similarly, Buddhism's 'emptiness' is empty: any teaching on the nature of conventions is itself conventional.
For consciousness is conscious of something we compare to something else, there is no way out of conventions; but we might still act differently if we understand the nature of conventions, i.e. their lack of absoluteness and their difference from reality.
