Arjun Sara, "YANTRA 01", 2021
YANTRA 01, 2021
Serigraphy on Munken Polar (300 GSM)
59.4 x 42 cm
Edition of 20 + 2 AP + 2 GP
Inspired by cosmology and the world beyond our control, YANTRA 01 studies the form and function of the Jantar Mantar, as a tool for study and how it has inspired architects such as Le Corbusier. Produced in a cyclical motion, evolved from analogue photographs and physical collages made from photography file cards, the print designed digitally goes back to being a physical print produced manually. The work is not only about the final image, but also the slow iterations that may be missed, much like the small changes caused by the slow passing of time and the evolution of life.
