LaN co-director Luis Fraguada produced a set of pieces in collaboration with Nuru Karim[LIVE] for an exhibition called ‘Relative Visa’ held in Mumbai. The main idea was to develop a physical resonance in response to the brief of the exhibition and also to forward LaN’s 2009 agenda of SOUND. A script was written which takes an input surface and through a sin function, modulates surface coordinates in the positive and negative z axis. Each side of the surface was given a distinct frequency. When brought together, a new interference pattern emerges. These were milled in corian. Nuru Karim developed a strategy to flow through the exhibition space with thermoformed corian sheets. More images from the exhibition coming soon.
Below is a description of the exhibition:
Architecture is frozen music. Art is flowing music. When the two meet they create an exciting resonance. RELATIVE VisA, a new show at Bodhi Space and Bodhi (Kala ghoda) curated by artist Bose Krishnamachari aims to achieve just that. Opening on 28th January to February 27th 2009, the show brings together an exciting mix of artists, designers and architects. Anant Joshi[artist], Charmi Gada Shah [artist], Gargi Raina (Artist), Gigi Scaria, Sujit S N[artist], Gulam Sheik [artist], Kapil Gupta [architect], N. N. Rimzon [artist], Natraj Sharama [artist], Nisha & Soumitro Ghosh[architect], Nuru Karim[LIVE]+Luis Fraguada[LaN], Rajiv Saini[designer], Vivan Sundaram(Artist) and Vishal K. Dar[architect], come together to explore exciting intersection of art, architecture and design. Devoting their intellectual efforts to such an ambitious undertaking by Bose Krishnamachari might look both delusional and indulgent but this show aspires to achieve the impossible: blur the boundaries between each form.
