‘terraoptics’, 2016

“Terraoptics” is a work based on “Black Gold”, a piece presented by Vivan Sundaram in the first Kochi Biennale.
Here Sundaram brings back the discarded potsherds from Pattanam, Kerala as forms and small structures presented as photographs shot in a dark room studio. The fragments are made into contemporary containers placed within luminous dissecting planes and patterns. The site, a set or model is depicted as a flat bed picture plane when viewed from above. Therefore the abstracted objects amalgamate with the optical geometry. The representation of the earth locations oscillates from urban formations to denuded landscapes.
