Yet another composite, with a more symbolic approach. Roots.
Here, I used pieces of photos I’ve taken over the years (of trees, feathers and metal structures) to create some basic elements in this work.
Free images of neurons from the web were also used and together with the photos I took. These were arranged into tree-like structures.
The tree-like structures themselves represent the connections we see in much of the world around us.
Branches interconnect and make trees. Trees support life (peacock feathers).
Life supports thought (neurons).
In some way, life and thought connect to one another, and they allow us to create.
From thought, comes structure and creation (represented here by the “origin” sculpture).
“Whence all creation had its origin,
the creator, whether he fashioned it or whether he did not,
the creator, who surveys it all from highest heaven,
he knows — or maybe even he does not know. “
~Rig Veda, Book 10
