Artist Dayna Thacker is interested in the extreme interconnection of everything that exists in our world. From the very large to the infinitely small, she believes that everything ties together in a balanced system of existence. Her exploration of these relationships is evident in her collage project, entitled Theories of Everything.
Using elements of geometry, symmetry, and repetition, Thacker creates a visual language featuring simple and elegant compositions that are layered together with hand-cut lines and shapes. In each piece, the colors and textures blend together in balanced and intertwined landscapes.
I Live Under Your Sky Too is a massive (32-feet wide) installation by artist Shilpa Gupta, erected by the sea on Carter Road in Bandra, Mumbai.
The installation features the text “I live under your sky too” written in three languages — English, Hindi and Urdu — using LED lights with the individual words intermixed. The lights go on and off, highlighting the sentence in each language alternately. Read between the lines and the message is one of religious, national, political, class, and gender harmony.
