The bird is above, and below
Its shadow is running bird-like.
A fool becomes the hunter of the shadow
Running so much that he runs out of breath.
Ignorant that this is the picture of the air-born bird
Ignorant of where the origin of the shadow is.
Fragments of Light 6
Inspired by the poem: Verse 425 Masnavi I, the projection consists of abstract images shifting from an opening gate of light, to a flying bird, to a closing eye on the horizon, and to a veil of light into darkness. The sound of the harp subtly emerges, blending into the tonality of the projected visual narratives. As a whole, this installation articulates a space to be visible, invisible, audible and silent.
