Ephemeral Void – Elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space)

“From the standpoint of Taoist philosophy natural forms are not made but grown, and there is a radical difference between the organic and the mechanical.

Things which are made, such as houses, furniture, and machines, are an assemblage of parts put together, or shaped, like sculpture, from the outside inwards.

But things which grow shape themselves from within outwards—they are not assemblages of originally distinct parts; they partition themselves, elaborating their own structure from the whole to the parts, from the simple to the complex. ”

Eastern philosophy is mainly based on the Classical elements. This series of works, “Generative Algorithm Art”, named, “Ephemeral Void, Elements” (Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space) is inspired by the above philosophy.

This project explores the aesthetic expression of the five elements, which are associated with manifestation of the five prime elements of nature.

This abstract spinning animated particle Video will be generated through digital manipulation of data, using synergy of each element’s video, sound, machine and code.

Ephemeral Void -Seasons (Summer, Winter, Spring, Autumn and Monsoon)

Ephemeral Void -Seasons (Summer, Winter, Spring, Autumn and Monsoon)

Eastern philosophy is mainly based on the power of nature elements. My new work, a “Generative Algorithm Art”, named, “Ephemeral Void, Autumn I” is inspired by the above philosophy.

This project explore aesthetic of abstract nature and the same time caution for ephemeral natural changes.

This abstract spinning animated particle visuals will be generated through digital manipulation of data, using synergy of each season’s nature color pattern, sound, machine and code for my new work.

Unhealed Wounds

The art and culture in this era of post-times, describe the kinds of hybrid nature of art. The hybrid or mixing cultural forms developed in the regions where the local identities seek definition against or in dialogue with western hegemonic cultures. This ‘terror’ cannot merely understand within the frame of political terrorist actions, but other types include psychic, criminal, and religious too. A negativity bias formed of an intellectual psychological warfare is widely carried out in our day today life. That is very silent and invisible. The immanent sublime (unpresentable) represented by the artists’ draws a dialogue on the impact of such terror which include disappearance, displacement, misplacement, extinction, consumerism, transgendering, migration, ambiguity etc. and makes alert.

I work closely with the artistic literary movement Immagine & Poesia. The international artistic literary movement founded in Torino, Italy, in 2007, under the Patronage of the late Aeronwy Thomas, daughter of Dylan Thomas.

Cognition Libido

Cognition Libido

Inherent sexual desire is a common phenomena of the universal – whether it is male or female. This is what I exposed in this work of Art. I believe the time of the creation of life is absolute. The symbol used in this work is taken from Heart Chakra (Yoga) and the vibrant colors from Indian Tantric Art, the philosophical term (Libido) from Sigmund Freud.
