If he has no traveller
To offer mystical meat
Pleasing him for the moment to be
Then for all his days
He is no demon
He is lost within
He is no more.

12 audience members enter every 30 minutes to experience a site-specific field of sculpture, sound and oscillation. 

Inspired by the thicket of a black box and the transformative qualities of light, Vatapi re-imagines perspective outside of cartesian geometry and the ways in which we view our physical world. 

Two beams of light, one tracing an elliptical orbit and the other piercing through a pulsating circle, entwine in a rhythmic beating of echoes through a time-coded set of conditions. The stillness of non-space evaporates with the embedded soundscape of the Earth’s magnetosphere.

Vatapi is presented as an ongoing exploration of the artists’ engagement with light and sight, condition and duration, myth and technology. This work is presented as part of the Black Box Okhla Residency, and is included in India Art Fair 2020’s parallel venue series. It is open to audiences in specified intervals from 30th January to 4th February 2020, 4-7pm.
