TITLE: The mountains are moving like clouds
ARTFORM: Paper and light, 2m x 1.5 approx.
DESCRIPTION: This work is a small meditation upon the nature of light and material. Light travelling. With modern physics, we are uncovering ideas of the structure of matter, which are different from what we observe with our eyes. They relationship of flux and solid-state material becomes a metaphor of that between logic and imagination. Quantum physics correlates with the texts of the ancients. What sense were they utilising to apprehend such things? There is all that and then there are the stars.

'The sky is large here and the eye can stretch to the horizon. Being so close to the inland region allows one to contemplate space and journeys undertaken in this space; such as those of the camel drivers in the 1800's, the epic expeditions in search of the inland sea, and the tradition of 'walkabout'; by extension, all 'wisdom' of the desert.' - Asma
