Snail - A Kinetic Sculpture
I love the tradition of the postcard. Choosing the perfect picture, perhaps the one with the statue of Bacchus, for your Grecophilic neice. Finding a perfect set of stamps, which you slather with your saliva and try to make it stay against the glossy backside of the postcard. Remembering to write with a ball-point, because the gloss will not absorb the ink. And finally, sitting with pen hovering over the paper's surface, being stingy with words, trying to say much more, hoping to take your heartbeats across a continent.
I believe those words deserve to be seen, as much as the picture. Here's a tribute!
Laser Engraving on Wood
Sand, clay and paint on Glass. Rajasthan is a state in India, engulfed by the Thar desert. As dry and parched is the land, equally vibrant and colorful the culture of the people there.
A plywood, threaded rod supported bookshelf.
Self-designed Chalkboard top table with partially open storage. This perspective shows the "Postcard photos" base (on the right) and "Bhopal Memories" (on the left)
Before the the finishing. Getting all the wood together and carpentering the ply.
An individual mirror of the Installation. About 50 mirrors were used in all, hanging by threads from the tree branches.
Ink transfer on pinewood
Oils on Clay
