My Journey of becoming a Mother Part Two cont.
I have always been interested in the idea of there’s-gotta-be-more-than-what-it-is. The movie, Contact (1997), is one of the few I watched and still resonates in me. The female antagonist’s (played by Jody Foster) has a faith that there would be something more than us humans in the universe. As a little girl, she was fascinated by the stars and so did I.
I feel strong connection to the stars because I feel they are the generous clues to the realities beyond my time. The possibility that there are other “times” other than the moment my senses recognise and that they are co-existing with this moment is wonderful. And isn’t time and space nothing but a stage for something that we call life, force, energy, or sprit?
I love the round orange moon that hangs an inch above the roof because there is something that needs to be decoded there.
The drawings of hypercubes were born with this kind of curiosity. I embarked on a research for the examples of the visualisation of the fourth dimension (which is the third dimension in time) and came across the works of Tony Robin (http://tonyrobbin.net/work.htm.) I was drawn to his work because of his use of color as architectural element to build dimensions. There is so much potential in this idea!
The morning sickness that accompanied my second pregnancy subsided as I constructed time with colours. The project’s nature was akin to a scientific experimentation with an object to discover how color-transformation can lead a movement in space, thus creating a sense of time resting in one place. With hypercube drawings, I used crosshatchings (making a surface with lines) and optical color blending. I created simply because I wanted to see what happens if…
I rarely have a good plan, in my art making or life. What you must have is a hope. Two months after the end of exhibition of the *Blessings II*, on a plain day following a blue moon of the year 2012, Hope, my second child, came into the world.
