Meet me in the desert  (installation), 2019

2D/3D drawing (digital prints on Hahnemühle paper), neon light, transformer, cables, gaffer tape
98” x 67” x 2”

Reflecting on the Vedic concept of Kaivalya (investigation of self), the nature of emptiness, detachment and endless space, for this work – lyrics from the Johnny Cash song “Out Among the Stars” were converted to binary numbers to plot drawing and sculpting points within a 3D modelling program. The resulting polygon sculpture was then introduced into a 2D environment, where the drawing composition was finalised. Layering lines of light and tape into the final installation brings another dimension when the drawing is realised.
