An Eternal Genesis, 2017
Vikram arora in collaboration with Shama Shah
Whilst the terms Eternal and Genesis are antithetical and contradictory to each other, they signify the duality of creation and living force that permeates through all life.
Inspired by the Permaculture Spiral and the symbol of Infinity,where both represent a beginning that never ends, this installation is constructed using bamboo, and enhancing its materiality to create a more structured form as a primal and meta-physical pattern in nature.
The natural spring of the figure 8 is a rhythm , flowing back and forth ceaselessly, hence called the ‘infinity loop’. It represents the dynamic and continuous flow between polar opposites, therefore maintaining a natural and eternal balance.
