documenting meaningless.


while trying to free my life of clutter, came across some old diaries.

now i use the diary for my work as well as art : i try to have a discipline - one side is work and other is art, but as the time passes it all gets mixed up. just like life.

back to the point : found the diaries interesting.

i am not a fan of relishing the past (in fact, i prefer forgetting it) - but the diaries took me back to the threads of thoughts, touched and untouched.

the threads are about life, art, philosophy, technic, form - anything and everything that bothered me enough to be noted.

thought of documenting them - exactly in the way i found them (without correcting grammar : many a times corrections flush away the meaning, so better left as is) - without dates, references, just what i wrote - how i wrote, leaving the whys and whens to the reader.

my art is about absence / space

______________________________

when people see my art, they see space

______________________________

my art is architectural, it is a depiction of space.

______________________________

space can only be depicted by absence, not presence

a b s e n c e

i should make me feel the space i have in my life.

space is the power to make a choice and disregard time.

______________________________

all my work is about absence

absolute can only emerge when one lets it be seen as absolute
